The company was founded in Irvington, New Jersey in 1886 and later relocated to Sag Harbor, New York. Throughout its storied history, Alvin has operated under a variety of names, including The Alvin Silver Manufacturing Company, Alvin Silver Co. Over the years, Alvin has produced a wide array of objects from hollow and flatware patterns to finely-decorated mirrors and tea sets. The Bridal Rose, William Penn, and Edward VII rank among their well-known patterns.Around the turn of the 19th century, Alvin began to manufacture silverware based on historical patterns, which was met with great success. This positioned them as a major competitor of the American giant Gorham Mfg. In 1928, Gorham negotiated the acquisition of Alvins dies, the key to reproducing their famed silver objects.
Alvin now exists as a subsidiary of Gorham, which continues to manufacture some of the early Alvin lines. The pattern is noted for its elegant and refined Neoclassical design featuring cascading laurels tied at the end with a delicate bow ribbon framing a cartouche.
