About the R. Blackinton Co.:
S.R. Blackinton enters the 21st century as the standard bearer for a family of silversmiths and goldsmiths who, since 1862, have epitomized their professions’ highest standards of design and manufacturing achievement.
Susanne Ross Blackinton was born into her trade. Her great-great grandfather co-founded R. Blackinton & Co in North Attleboro, MA as the Civil War raged. It was a full silver house that also specialized in goldsmithing, engraving, enameling, metal spinning, and more. One of its earliest commissions was to supply flatware in the Marie Louise pattern to U.S. embassies around the world.
Into the early 20th century, R. Blackinton & Company increased its lines to include, at various times, plated and silver jewelry, dresser ware, fancy table pieces, novelties, and 14 karat gold merchandise. In 1937, the company added an exclusive line of fine Sterling flatware and hollowware for retail jewelers.
