The 1910 Stieff Catalog, Pages 1-10

 

The catalog that I have scanned here is a copy of an original. The size appears to be 7.25 x 11 inches. I have tinted the cover of the copy to match the blue that Stieff used in 1913 on the “Art of Silversmithing” booklet and the late 1920’s large catalog.

Note: The front cover and inside cover, which would be blank are considered pages 1 & 2


This catalog has been reproduced in the past by The University Press.



Note that at this time , the 17 McLane address is in use. After the great

fire of 1904, the Liberty Street name was changed to

McLane Place. In 1914 the name reverted to Liberty Street again.



While not noted, the factory at this point would still have been in Cider Alley

Moving a few blocks away to German Street by 1913.


In the picture of the Maryland (ROSE) Pattern below, notice the different

placement of the rose. It would appear that the photograph of the spoon is reversed. (oops!)  Below on page 9, notice the pattern differences in the different pieces of flatware shown. Even at this early date, Stieff already had subtle differences in the pattern, all depending on the die used.

 

I would like to point out that on this list and others in the catalog the Dinner Knife is not listed. The dinner knife is referenced later on page 11, and that is the only place in the catalog a dinner knife is mentioned, and that is in cased goods. The Medium knife seems to be the default knife at the time.


Above...Look at the #9 FORK in the lower left corner, that is what a Salad Fork looked like in 1910. Today we would call it a “Spork”. The #8 fork is different in that there is a five petal flower above the rose in the middle of the leaf area along the top edge.  Note the lack of #1, which should be the knife.
