Also included is a Medallion Twist pattern bar spoon that is also marked “Derby Silver Co.”; it measures approximately 5 and 1/2 inches long. This pattern was made by Redfield & Rice circa 1870. Edwin Brittin worked for Redfield & Rice and when they went out of business their machinery was brought to the newly formed Derby Silver Co. by Edwin Brittin in the early 1870s. This Medallion Twist pattern spoon might have been made with one of the Redfield & Rice moulds.

Both the Star julep strainer and the Medallion Twist bar spoon were featured in Derby Silver Company’s 1883 catalogue.
