In 1846 and then again in 1861, Kirk changed the name of his company to Samuel Kirk & SonS with the addition of his sons Charles and Clarence joining the firm. Although these younger sons left the company after the Civil War, Henry and his son, Henry, Jr. Continued the family business even after Samuels death in 1872. Kirk silver, or Baltimore silver is instantly recognizable by its hand-crafted repousse technique hammering the reverse side of silver to produce an intricate design in low relief -- which Samuel Kirk introduced to America in 1828.
