History of This Now Very Rare and
Sheffield pinto differs from all other
plated ware in that the plating was
done on the sheet metal bet,.re the
Icicle was shaped. Before and si nee
V-n plating of various sorts lias been
Spiled only to the finished piece, as In
our electroplating process. Moreover,
the plating was done on copper, while
modern base metal is usually coin

historically and nrtisth . s worthy
of a plnco beside old eh, l old
mahogany as is old silverware.
In 1712 one Thomas Bolso' <.f
Sheffield. England, d.-seribed .1 the
histories as an "iugcnlous mechanic." I
accidentally fused S' c silver and cop
ier while repairing a knife. He began
experimenting, seeking for a method of
plating copper with silver for the man
ufacture of small articles. In IT IT*., to
gether with Joseph Wilson, he set up a
factory for the manufacture of buc
kles, snuffboxes and knife handles.
Joseph Hancock soon got hold of the
secret aud, perfecting it, demonstrated
that It was possible to Imitate the
finest and most richly embossed silver
ware. Settling in ShelUeld, be started
the manufacture of all sorts of domes
tic pieces. Beginning modestly with
horsepower, he later added water pow
er for the rolling process. Other man
ufacturers followed his example, and
Sheffield pi..to soon began to replace
pewter on the tables of the English
middle classes. Altogether we know
of twenty-three important mantlfactur
ers of this ware.
The industry nourished until the
middle of the nineteenth century, aud
so few pieces of copper rolled plalo
were made after that time thai they
need not concern I he collector, Elc 'tro
plating was discovered or Invented by
a medical student of Rotherhnm. near
Sheffield, and the new process was
patented on March LT?. 1810. By IS50
the new ware was on the market ev
erywhere, and the industry had been
revolutionized.--Country Life In Amer

her with admiration. And Eugenie
was not slow to observe the effect ol

to her side, and Bismarck came, with
his wife upon bis arm.
