The Meriden Silver Plating Company has a long history, having been founded in 1860 and in constant production of silverware and hollowware until 1965.
One of the things contributing to their fame was an Art Deco line for the passenger ship Ile de France in 1929.
The pinched shaped this shaker was perhaps one of the latest examples of their line .
