Victorian Sterling Silver Bookmark by Kirk & Son

Baltimore's prominent silverware manufacturing company, Samuel Kirk & Son, began in 1815 and introduced to America the repousse treatment of silver inspired by the East India silversmiths. Repousse means formed in relief and refers to a pattern which is beaten or pressed up from the reverse side.
