Re: Crown Silver Plate Co

There are at least three separate companies known as the Crown Silver Plate Co.

One was locate in Bristol, Connecticut later becoming part of the American Silver Co. also of Bristol. The company was later bought by International Silver Company.

Another was in New York City they were acquired by J.W.Johnson.

The last was in Toronto, Canada and went out of business in 1922.

I have never seen catalogues for these companies and so it may be difficult to find out more about your platter.

Re: Re: Crown Silver Plate Co

Thank you very much

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?

Thanks again,
Kathy
