FIDDLE THREAD by FRANK SMITH
Patented 1902
The Fiddle Thread pattern, patented 1902 by the Frank W. Smith Co., reflects tableware popular in France during the late 18th century and the United States in the early 19th century. It is like the forks and spoons among the two sets of “table furniture’ purchased by Thomas Jefferson when he arrived in Paris in August of 1784.
