Daffodils, also known as the Narcissus plant, take their name from a young hero of the ancient province of Thespiae, Greece. Although there are many versions of the myth, the most common has Narcissus so consumed with his own beauty that the gods cursed him by causing him to waste away his life admiring himself. One day, while walking beside a reflecting pool, the youth became enamored of his own image. As a result, he spent the rest of his life staring at his reflection in the pool. Whenever he reached for his reflection, his image disappeared. Confused, but not wanting to leave, he would stare intently downward at the pool until his reflection returned. Many varieties of daffodils have blooms that point downward, much like the youth gazing admiringly at his own reflection, hence the adaptation of the Narcissus name for the flowers.
International Silver started as a combination of America’s greatest silver manufacturers. During the American Colonial period, New England was home to many artisans producing high-quality pewter, sterling, and silverplate, primarily in Connecticut. Around 1808, Ashbile Griswold opened a pewter shop in Meriden, Connecticut. Through mergers with regional companies, Griswold’s original shop grew to comprise fourteen silver manufacturers, including Holmes and Edwards (Bridgeport), Meriden Britannia (Meriden), and Rogers Brothers (Hartford). In 1898, the International Silver Company became truly “international,” establishing offices in England and Canada. Throughout the years, International Silver products have remained immensely popular.
