Al Bar Wilmette Platers, Inc. has acquired Gilbertson’s of Chicago. The acquisition of Gilbertson’s has been a tremendous strategic opportunity for us to strengthen our experience and capabilities. The value of the tools and expertise Gilbertson’s had accumulated over nearly 100 years of business has provided Al Bar Wilmette an strategic element for us tom continue forward with a craft that many feel is nearing extinction. Several long time Gilbertson’s employees currently serve with our team here in our Wilmette, Illinois location. If you have any questions or wish to have our staff review your next project do not hesitate to contact us directly.

Gilbertson's Silver History

The Gilbertson’s name has been associated with fine silversmithing, silver resoration and repair in Chicago since 1901. If you have fine flatware to be polished or a coffee pot with a broken hinge to be soldered give us a call. Gilbertson’s was the silversmith for almost a century that was trusted by Marshall Field and Company with restoration and repair work.
