HISTORY AND MARKS
The firm was organized in 1865 as Wilcox Britannia Co by Jedediah and Horace Wilcox, Charles Parker, Aaron Collins and Hezekiah Miller and others.
The firm was active in Meriden, CT with salesrooms at 6 Maiden Lane, New York.
The name was changed to Wilcox Silver Plate Co in 1867.
In 1869 was acquired Parker & Casper Co, a specialist in silverplate holloware.
Wilcox Silver Plate Co was one of the original companies that became part of International Silver Company in 1898.
Immediately afterwards (1899) Middletown Silver Plate was closed and the production transferred to Wilcox factory. Superior Silver Co was a Middleton trademark manufactured by Wilcox.
The "half circle" mark was introduced in 1921 and registered in 1923.
The factory was closed in 1941 because of metal shortage in WWII. After the war Wilcox designs were made in other International Silver Company factories.
The trademark was changed to Webster Wilcox in 1961 when the Wilcox Silver Plate Co., E.G. Webster & Son and several other divisions of International Silver were consolidated. Webster-Wilcox was acquired by Oneida in 1981.
