I will give your question a shot, I am in now way the most knowlegable. My assumption is that you refer to Kirk of Samuel Kirk and Son of Baltimore, Maryland. They operated under that name during the period you asked about. The company was was started by Samuel Kirk (1793-1872) and was joined by his sons Henry Child Kirk, Charles D. Kirk, & Clarence E, Kirk. Henry Child Kirk Jr. joined the firm in 1870. I believe by the turn of the century the company was run by Henry Child Kirk Jr. under the name S. Kirk & Son Co. In 1979 Kirk Corp and Stieff joined forces to form The Kirk Stieff Co. This info was gleened from the Baltimore Museum of Art Catalogue on Maryland Silver and Dorothy Rainwater's Encyclopedia of Silver Manufacturers. Hope this helps.
