OLD NEWBURY CRAFTERS - Newburyport, MA and Amesbury, MA
Founded in 1915 by Elmer Senior and Albert S. MacBurnie. The firm was incorporated in 1932 as The Old Newbury Crafters. From 1915 to 1932 the company made handmade holloware, flatware and tea ware. In 1956 the company bought Worden-Munnis Co (founded in Boston in 1940), resumed the making of flatware stopped in 1932 and began to stamp its production with the mark "HANDWROUGHT". In 1965 the company started the practice of marking any handwrought piece with the personal symbol of the craftsman that made it. According to Dorothy Rainwater book (Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers) the "Newbury Eagle", extensively present in their advertising, has never been used on the silver, but I can document the use of Eagle mark in the example below (ONC mark and personal marks of Fletcher S. Carter and Robert H. Bean with "Newbury Eagle")
