The Frank W Smith Co was located in Gardner, Massachusetts, operating from 1886-1958. The company produced high quality sterling flatware and holloware. Frank Smith was the grandson of William Durgin and worked for him in Concord, New Hampshire, before establishing his own company. Their dies were sold to Towle and the company was sold to Webster Silver Co. upon closure in 1958.
This lovely set of 6 demi-tasse spoons (there are two sets available), is a simple, yet elegant pattern, of a large embossed flower near the end of the handle. I was unable to identify the pattern name, if you know please let me know. The pattern is very similar to the 'Victoria' pattern which was produced by Frank Smith's grandfather, William Durgin. The spoons measure 4 1/2" in length and the set of 6 weighs 1.705 ounces. They are stamped "S" in a circle with triangle wings on either side and "sterling". Most of the spoons are also stamps "Hugo Beil" which I assume was a retailer or wholesaler company. Very good condition with no issues and nice patina.
