George K. Webster Silver Company was founded by George K. Webster in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, in 1869. The company created lines of sterling silver items, from small and intricate thimbles to large and exquisite candlesticks. They manufactured over 20 patterns of products such as dresser sets, picture frames, cigarette holders, bowls, baby items, napkin rings and candlesticks, primarily in sterling silver, although some items were silver plated. Apparently, George K. Webster personally oversaw and supervised every aspect of the production process, which explains the uniformly high standard of design and craftsmanship of items that bear the Webster signature.
