Elkington Silver Co.

Elkington Silver Company is one of the premiere producers of flatware and plates. The company has a rich history that dates back to the industrial revolution. Most notably, Queen Victoria allowed for Elkington Silver Company to replicate much of the royal fine china, a convention that was subsequently adopted my many of the reigning royal families throughout Europe.

Throughout the years of its storied legacy, Elkington Silver Company has been granted royal warrants by Queen Victoria, Queen Alexandra, King George V, King Edward VII, Queen Mary, and King George VI, among many others. This is a distinctive honor bestowed upon companies who have supplied members of the royal family with goods or services.

Elkington Silver Company supplied flatware to the luxury dining sections on the RMS Titanic, as well as other vessels of the famed White Star Line fleet. The brand also furnished the flatware for the Royal Yacht Britannia’s dining room, which served the British royal family until it was decommissioned in the 1990s.
