A short-lived company, the "Northwestern Silver Ware Manufacturing Company" was "founded [in Chicago] shortly after the Civil War" and never rebuilt after the Great Fire of 1871, according to Dorothy Rainwater's Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers.

Rainwater identifies the company as "manufacturers of silverplated wares," but as this 6 1/2" long, .8 T. oz., pickle fork marked "900/1000" for coin confirms, the company also offered solid silver items as well.
