HISTORY AND MARKS
Manufacture of plated silverware established in 1893 as Poole & Roche. Later, Poole bought the full control and managed the company until his death.
Poole was succeded by his three sons until 1946 when they retired and sold the company to a group headed by Sidney A. Kane.
In 1946 was opened a sterling silver department, in 1950 the Bristol Silver divison for popular plated holloware and in 1964 the brass division.
The company was bought by Towle Mfg Co in 1971.
