This sterling silver stuffing spoon was made by the Arthur J. Stone Co. of Gardner, MA.. Stone was a silversmith who apprenticed in England and then immigrated to the U.S. in 1884. After working for a few American companies, in 1901 he opened his own silver manufacturing company. Stone was one of the primary supporters of the Arts& Crafts movement and the work that was produced by his company reflected that style in his designs.
As Stone hired silversmiths to do his work, he wanted each person to receive recognition for his work. Every piece that his company manufactured was signed with a letter which represented the silversmith's name. This stuffing spoon was signed with the letter "B". That letter stood for Charles Brown who worked for Stone from 1912 until 1937 as a spoon maker.
