Standard Silver Co. design catalogues and historical information

Marks, advertisements & more concerning the design legacy.


This company is understood to have been formed in November 1894. At this developing research juncture, it is not clear in what year the Standard Silver Co. became officially part of the International Silver Co. of Canada, with the International Silver Co. headquartered in Meriden, Conn., USA.



When did the Standard Silver Co. become part of the International Silver Co. of Canada?

More primary source information is needed to answer this question, but at artdesigncafe.com, a dating of c. 1912 is the working assumption of when the Standard Silver Co. became part of the International Silver Company of Canada, based on Rainwater et al. (2004). (For all sources mentioned here, see the compilation below). "ISC" is indicated below when the source of the entry explicitly mentions the International Silver Co. (of Canada).

However, at this juncture, two clear sources show at some point the Standard Silver Co. became part of the International Silver Co. of Canada. First is a mark with both companies indicated, but this in itself does not specify a year. However, a trophy with this mark with a year of award indicated would help provide clarity. Second are advertisements starting in 1925 that mention the two companies, and that the International Silver Co. of Canada is the successor of the Standard Silver Co.

Secondary sources state the following. Rainwater et al.’s Encyclopedia of American silver manufacturers (2004) states that the company "merged with International Silver Co. of Canada, Ltd, about 1912", but no clear primary source is footnoted on the page. However, there is an extensive resources list at the end of the encyclopedia. A lack of clarity is also shown in Edmund Hogan’s An American heritage: A book about the International Silver Company (1977). While in other cases, Hogan offers precise dating of other companies joining the company, he does not in the Standard Silver Co. case, and there are other instances found of errors in dating. Hogan does not specify primary sources. Meanwhile in Earl Chapin May’s A century of silver (1947), his illustration indicates a Standard Silver Co. starting year of 1895 and it appears that the company joined ISC Canada in 1922, without explanation or specifying primary sources.

Another element in the discourse is that in 1915, in an obituary of George M. Curtis, he is noted as the treasurer of the International Silver Company in Meriden, and also was a director of the Standard Silver Co., and treasurer and director of Meriden Britannia Co. of Hamilton, Ontario, which was under the US ISC umbrella. So from this, it is suggested by 1915 that ISC had at least some sort of financial stake in the Standard Silver Co., but noting that the branding visible in advertisements in corporations that own different companies don’t always state a parent company, perhaps here for diversified marketing / communications purposes in the Canadian market.

Lastly, Holmes & Edwards silverware, with H&E in the United States and part of ISC since 1898, starts to appear in Standard Silver Co. advertisements in 1917. First, Standard Silver Co. is a "distributor" of H&E; then by 1920, the H&E designs are "manufactured" by the Standard Silver Co., noting that presumably Canada still had a tariff to encourage manufacturing in Canada, versus importing the foreign goods.

Further, there is mention that the Standard Silver Co. was to become part of the newly formed International Silver Co. in 1898 in certain news reports. However, two other companies, R. Wallace & Sons and Manning, Bowman & Co. are also listed in these reports, and they both are understood not to have joined the combine, in the end, either. Having said this, the 1895 news report below states that the Holmes & Edwards Company and the Manhattan Silver Plate Co., both companies that joined the US ISC combine in 1898, were involved in the formation of the Standard Silver Co. in November 1894. In the end, more primary source documentation is needed to answer this question.
