History of the George K. Webster Silver Company
As its name suggests, the
George K. Webster Silver Company was founded by George K. Webster in
North Attleboro, Massachusetts, in 1869. The company created lines of
sterling silver items, from small and intricate thimbles to large and
exquisite candlesticks. The company's distinctive hallmark can be seen
on some of the sterling silver items that have come up for sale online
and in antique stores. These items illustrate the styles and tastes of
the time periods they represent and provide some historical perspective
for George K. Webster silverware.
The George K. Webster Silver
Company manufactured over 20 patterns of products such as dresser sets,
picture frames, cigarette holders, bowls, baby items, napkin rings and
candlesticks, primarily in sterling silver, although some items were
silver plated. Apparently, George K. Webster personally oversaw and
supervised every aspect of the production process, which explains the
uniformly high standard of design and craftsmanship of items that bear
the Webster signature.
The company's sterling silver
products are identifiable through its unusual hallmark, the letter "W"
with a feathered arrow flying through its center, from left to right.
The Webster hallmark is prominent on an array of sterling silver items
that are available for sale. Some of these items might be described as
"luxurious" because of their craftsmanship, but also because they were
everyday items made for customers of means or the "well-to-do."
One of the elegant array of household
items manufactured by George K. Webster was an Art Nouveau style,
Victorian sterling silver cut glass coaster set, circa late 1800s. The
Art Nouveau period (1890 to 1910) was part of the Victorian era,
distinguished by elaborate and intricate lines and stylised design
images such as of women with flowing locks, cherubs and fairies, and the
Perhaps an indication of the
company's clientele is the Victorian sterling silver calling card case
made by George K. Webster in the 1900s. It was curved so as to fit
against the body, with a sophistication of design that represented their
standard of excellence.
An elaborate sterling silver
compact, cigarette case and sovereign holder exemplified the style and
quality of pre-1910 products designed and manufactured at George K.
Webster. Other items manufactured around that time provide further
insights into the lifestyle of the company's clients. For example, a
button and shoe
buckle hook were among the sterling silver accessories made by the
company. So was a sterling silver baby bib holder which held the bib in
place with two fasteners, one on each end of a silver chain. Sterling
silver bonbon tongs were a popular item around 1910.
1930s to 1940s
The silver jewelry
styling of the 1930s to 1940s is represented by the company's sterling
silver sweater clips embedded with Guilloche enamel open roses and
leaves. During this general period, George K. Webster also made sets of
sterling silver ice cream goblets, the ultimate in gracious living.
In 1958, the company bought the
Frank W. Smith Silver Company of Gardner, Massachusetts. Subsequently,
George K. Webster Silver Company became a subsidiary of Reed &
Barton, silversmiths whose own founding dates back to 1824. Reed &
Barton is known for its tableware and giftware.
