Chicago was founded by Henry Abiram Spaulding in 1888. During his time in Paris, Spaulding had associated with many of the royal families of Europe and examined many of their most important jewelry pieces.
He made extensive contacts with the makers of the finest jewelry, gold, silver, and china wares in Europe. He also served as Treasurer of the American committee in Europe to fund the Statue of Liberty. Using these contacts Spaulding & Co immediately acquired specially made luxury items from European manufacturers double-marked with the Spaulding name for the new company's opening stock. In 1894 Spaulding left the firm and retired to Arizona where he passed away in 1904 at the age of 67. The firm, however, continued with his name until 1989.
Coalport China adopted the mark on these pieces in 1881 and added the word England to the mark in 1891. Don't miss these fantastic antique Coalport / Spaulding Cup and Saucer sets for your collection.
