An artdesigncafe / Design Meriden resource.

"The antecedents of the [American Silver Company] were the Holmes and Tuttle Manufacturing Company, founded in 1851. They were taken over by the Bristol Brass and Clock Company in 1857, and operated as their silverware department until 1901. In that year, the spoon business was separated from the brass and clock business, and organized under the name of the American Silver Company. They were bought by [the] International Silver Company [headquartered in Meriden] in 1935."
