Wilcox Silver Plate Company - Located in Meriden, Connecticut. One of the original companies to join together and become part of The International Silver Company in 1898.
The Smith Metal Arts was established in Buffalo, NY in 1889 by German immigrant and metal and leather goods craftsman Otto Heintz, as the Art Crafts Shop, and began producing a variety of items fabricated primarily from Copper. He changed the name to the Heintz Art Metal Shop in 1906, and switched from Copper as his base material to Bronze and Sterling Silver. Heintz manufactured such items as vases, bowls, candlesticks, smoking accessories, lamps, picture frames, jewelry, and desk accessories, such as desk blotters, pen and letter holders, envelope sealers and ink blotters, and in fact, developed the first "lay-flat" page type of desktop calendar base. Following Heintz's death in 1918, the company was purchased by Frederick Smith, their top salesman, and through collaboration with the noted silversmith and jewelry designer, Peter Muller-Munk, eventually evolved into the manufacture of "designer" lines of desk and office accessories and accoutrements. The company during the 1920s produced decorative articles that bear the "Silver Crest" trademark. At one time they were under contract to Tiffany Studios and some of its finishes precisely match the Etched Crosier's design of Tiffany's. In fact, many Smith Metal Arts products in an Art Deco motif or with the SMA Silver Crest remain collector's items today.
