Theodore B. Starr was a company of silversmiths founded in New York in 1862 by Theodore Starr. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, who owns and displays pieces by T.B. Starr, champions the silversmith as “among the most prominent and influential jewelry and silversmithing firms in New York City during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries” whose work was “enthusiastically heralded in the press.” The company was incorporated in 1907 by Starr's son, before being bought in 1918 by Reed and Barton, and finally closing in 1923.
