The house of Kirk

Samuel Kirk & son


This mid-1960’s booklet shows the history of S. Kirk & Son in a glossed over fashion, but still provides all the information that most silver buyers of the period would want.

This is scanned from an original copy owned by the Stieff family.

When The Stieff Company bought S. Kirk & Son in 1979, the vast Kirk Silver collection came as

part of the deal. Kirk-Stieff later sold the collection to the Maryland Historical Society to keep the silver in Maryland.
