Description Beautiful intricate pattern covering entire handle of each piece. To create this pattern, Samuel Kirk, a Philadelphia-trained silversmith, revived an ancient technique known as "repousse" to create this lovely embossed design. Concerning the flatware pattern Repoussé, this pattern was introduced in 1845 and not in 1828 as commonly mentioned. The Hollow Ware pattern REPOUSSÉ was introduced in 1828 with the flatware pattern following almost two decades later. Kirk first used the word STERLING in 1914 so any silver with that word is going to be 1914 or later. The use of the “S. KIRK & SON” hallmark and STERLING is going to be 1932 or later.
