Simons Bros. Sterling Silver Flatware Patterns
Simons Brothers Co was founded by George Washington Simons and Peter Boneil Simons around the year 1842. The initial name registered is: George W. Simons & Brother. It is documented that in the year 1858, the company is said to be employing 60 works. They acquired Peter L. Krider Co. in the year 1903.
They manufacture quite a variety of items including: sterling silver flatware, holloware, thimbles, novelties and jewelry; made swords during the Civil War, gold and silver pen, pen case etc. In the year 1908, they stopped manufacturing flatware and their dies were sold to Alvin Mfg. Co.
The firm of Simons Brother and Company was then incorporated in the year 1905 and subsequently in the year 1913, it was later changed to Simons, Bro. & Co., however collectors may be interested to note that the company used the same name in the year 1877. The company still exist today.
