The Meriden Cutlery Company was incorporated in 1855 in Meriden Connecticut, but the company actually began in 1834. The company was owned and operated by Julius Pratt, founder of Pratt, Rodes, Webb & Co. This company eventually became Meriden.

This nice vintage set of tableware is typical Civil War... with 3 tine forks, white handles, and large bladed knives. The knives are nearly 10 inches long, and the forks are 8 inches long. They are made from low carbon steel forms which have had the handles applied and held in place with one rivet and upper and lower tangs. The tangs are probably pewter. All 5 sets (or 10 pieces) are still very tight, and even though the knife blades are worn, the original Meriden Company logo is still visible. This is a nice clean set of tableware with appropriate age related staining.
