The International Silver Co. was incorporated by a number of independent New England silversmiths in 1898, after which date the company continued to use the marks of its predecessors. The International Silver Co. mark itself was not used on flatware until after 1928 (see Dorothy T. Rainwater, "Enyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers," p. 77).
