Biography or history
Stanley Bailey Ineson was a collector of early American silver, especially silver spoons. He lived in Glen Cove, NY, with a vacation home in Manchester, VT. He worked on Wall Street at Spencer, Trask & Co. In the early 1930s, Ineson began collecting early American silver spoons, amassing some 1,700 items over the next 15 years. Ineson's collection was later (in 1962) purchased and presented to the Henry Francis du Pont Winterthur Museum by a third party. Ineson was married and had at least one child, a daughter named Phoebe.
