SILVER PLATED WARE IN SPAIN
Consul R. M. Bartleman, of Valencia, Spain, is authority for the statement that there is a large demand in that country for plain and fancy tableware. There is only one important factory in Spain, he says, which turns out this class of goods. It is that of Don Emilio Meneses, at Madrid, founded in 1840, and which supplies the greater part of the national wants.
American silver and plated goods are superior in finish to the Spanish, and it is the opinion of the consul that after making due allowances for freight and tariff, our manufacturers could compete to advantage with the domestic producers.
