I have a silver quadruple plate candelabra marked "Manufactured and Guaranteed by Middletown Silver Company 027 Quadruple" It holds five candles, has removable silver wax guards and the arms are beautiful S twists. I would like to know the possible date?

Thank you,
Mary Gsell

Middletown Silver Company was formed in 1899 by ex-employees of the Middletown Plate Company when the latter became part of International Silver and production moved to Meriden. It went bankrupt in 1910 although it was subsequently re-established.

The term "Quadruple" plate went out of fashion around the First World War, so I guess your piece dates to the earliest incarnation of the Middleton Silver Co.
