I have 2 lovely pewter wine glasses and I wanted to find out how old they are. On the bottom of each glass is etched:
    New Amsterdam Silver Co.
Can anyone give me the history of New Amsterdam Silver Co.?

Someone told me that New Amsterdam Silver Co. existed until the late 1800s. Does that mean I can assume that my glasses are from the late 1800s?

In Rainwater & Redfield, there is a referral to Knickerbocker Silver Co. When you go to Knickerbocker's listing, it says it is the successor to J.A. Babcock & Co. in 1894, which places the earliest possible date for these at 1894.

There is no specific information about New Amsterdam Silver other than a replication of their mark. The company (Knickerbocker) existed in some form or another until 1962, and these could be quite modern.

I wish I could help you more.
