Shopper’s Diary: E. R. Butler in New York

Sarah Lonsdale April 28, 2009

We recently found ourselves lingering in front of the Chris Lehrecke window display at our favorite NYC hardware shop, E. R. Butler. The simple brick warehouse at 53-55 Prince Street is the surviving portion of the legendary Prince Street Works, the silver department of Tiffany & Co. From this building—in use by Tiffany until 1897—some of the most influential American silver designs flowed. E.R. Butler carries on the tradition set by Tiffany, offering some of the most refined hardware and decorative objects we’ve seen anywhere.

Above: Ted Muehling’s precisely lathed, Biedermeier-inspired candlesticks became an instant classic when they were introduced by E. R. Butler; available in oxidized bronze, gold, or polished or pumiced sterling plate.

Above: Ted Muehling’s Mocca Cup with Saucer made of glazed bisque.

Above: Chris Lehrecke designed a line of twelve Brass Cabinet Knobs for E. R. Butler, drawing inspiration from the sculpture of Brancusi, Lehrecke’s own asp-hewn pedestal stools, and African tribal tools. All pieces are available in a satin, hand-pumiced nickel plate or an oxidized ebony patina.
