Contrary to popular belief, trend and price do not necessarily go hand in hand. International Silver specializes in producing high quality, fashionable products for the home at incredible values to you. Ultimately, International Silver's vision is to provide customers an array of products that blend trend and high fashion with practicality, products that truly fit the customers lifestyle.
The International Silver Company was formed in 1898 and traces its heritage back to Ashbil Griswold, who established a pewter shop in Meriden, Connecticut in 1808. Under Griswold's leadership, Meriden soon became a leading center in the production of Britanniaware, pewter, and silverware.
International Silver has been marketed aggressively since its formation. In 1968, International Silver became part of Insilco, itself a large conglomerate. In 1972, International Silver spun off its hotel division as an independent subsidiary, World Tableware International. A group of private investors purchased World Tableware in 1983 and organized the American Silver Company.
