I've been trying to find information on the Crown Silver Plate Co. pattern #151, with no avail. I have a platter that was my gram's and was passed on to me. On the bottom those words are embossed with a crown in the middle of it. I've researched a little bit of everywhere and had no luck whatsoever. Any help would be awesome. Its a beautiful piece and I'd love to be able to know a little of its history. We think it is an old dessert or appetitzer platter, it has beautiful designs on the plate part of it, very intricate. It looks to be almost victorian but because I am having a difficult time even figuring out where the Company was located I have no idea. I bet it has a lot of stories to tell. I know it isn't something my gram would have bought, so my aunt and I think that it was passed to her at some point in her life. ANy help would be awesome.
I would think that the platter would either have originated in either Toronto, Canada or Connecticut. My ancestors were Newfoundlanders, as well as others from Nova Scotia, who came down to Massachusetts in the early 1900's. Any ideas as to where I could go a little bit more in depth for info in those two areas?
