Despite the great interest in the Barbour Silver Company information on its history is sketchy. Here's what researchers at the Connecticut Historical Society uncovered:
In 1881 or 1882, Samuel Barbour moved from Chicago to New Haven, Conn., where he and his brother Charles joined in forming the Barbour Brothers Co. At this point, they were only marketers of silverplate products made by I. J. Steane & Co. of Hartford. But the brothers were operating in Hartford by no later than 1889, since the Geer's city directory for that year contains the listing, "Barbour Bros. Co. silverplated ware mfgs., 64 Market St." Market Street, located downtown, has been altered greatly since then.
In 1892, a decade or so after its formation, the brothers' original partnership was succeeded by the Barbour Silver Co., which also succeeded Steane & Co. The 1889 edition of the Geer's city directory has a listing for "Barbour Silver Co., Silversmiths, 62 Market St."
Barbour Silver became one of the first silver firms absorbed by the International Silver Co. of Meriden, Conn., when that concern was established in 1898.
The Flower Basket has the Barbour Silver Company hallmark of a Dutch windmill with tobacco pipes on left and right (see last picture). In 1898 the Barbour Silver Company became part of the International Silver Co. and it was added to their marking. This piece does not read International Silver Co. so it dates from 1892-1898.
This piece appears to be copper on silver ?? See pictures for worn areas where the piece is silver and other areas that are copper. Antique Barbour Silver Co RepoussÃ© Handled Flower Basket - Circa 1892 Tags: Housewares

Picking your order is the first step to ensuring accuracy and on time delivery. While many companies don't see the value of making certain that this step is done right, we go the extra mile and understand the importance of working hard and satisfying the customer. We know that a simple mistake at this point in the process can result in an unsatisfied customer later down the line.
PACKING YOUR ORDER
When we pack your order we consider a variety of factors.
First: Are the items that have been picked correct according to the invoice?
Second: Has the shipping method you've selected been verified?
Third: What packaging will protect your items the best?
And lastly: is your name and address clearly marked on the outside of the package?
We will happily combine multiple items into one package. All items are carefully individually wrapped and packed securely to assure safe transport.
SHIPPING YOUR ORDER
To get you your package quickly, it's important that when it is labeled we verify the address that you have provided to our Address Verification Service. This is a database maintained by UPS, FedEx, DHL, and the United States Postal Service. This ensures that there are no accidental typo's (either by you or by us). On the rare occasion a problem arises, you'll be contacted immediately by a Customer Service representative and asked for clarification. We ship your order out as fast and accurately as possible.
TRACKING YOUR ORDER
"How can I check the status of my order?" is one of the most common questions we receive. To make this easier, we've implemented an order fulfillment and tracking system. It starts when you place your order.
Upon shipment of your package you will receive a confirmation email with the service used ... in most cases this will be US Postal Service's Priority Mail, which is a 2 - 3 day service through the US and USPS Priority Mail International, a 6 - 10 Service.
You will also receive a tracking number to monitor the progress of your package as it makes it's way to your door step !! At every step in the process we believe you should be able to see your order and know its progress.
