Meriden Britannia Company was formed in 1852 as a manufacturing company focused on producing wares in britannia metal. It became, for a time, the largest silverware company in the world. In 1898 the company became part of the International Silver Company, so that helps us date this piece before 1898. Very scarce; no other copies available anywhere in the world, with beautiful large format images.

Price: $250.00
