Near the end of the 19th century, the silver production industry became increasingly competitive. Meriden Britannia and Rogers Brothers organized a cartel of silverware manufacturers to take advantage of economies of scale and to share industry secrets. In 1898, ISC incorporated in New Jersey.
Fourteen silver producers including Holmes & Edwards; Barbour Silver Co. ISC became a major American silverware producer, a position it maintains today. ISC was founded to take advantage of the efficiencies of cooperative commerce.
The artisanship and uniqueness of each individual company remained relatively intact. Each company maintained its separate identity.
When you're looking at antique silver, note that initially the individual companies that joined ISC did not use the standard mark of the company as a whole, but rather continued to use their own marks. In 1968 ISC was absorbed into the Insilco holding company.Wallace and ISC once again became separate entities when Katy Industries was bought by Syratech Corporation, which already included under its umbrella Leonard Silver and Towle Manufacturing Company. These goblets are NOT monogrammed. They are in good estate condition, although with the patina of old tarnish and fine scratches to be expected with age and use. The one condition exception is that a series of numbers have been etched on the bottom of each goblet. Also, the gold wash is faded with age.
The goblets price reflects their condition. This set of water goblets will make a lovely addition to any silver collection. The set combined weighs approximately.
