Notes historical bibliographic

E.P.N.S. In many articles, especially marketed in recent decades, it is common to find the "EPNS" symbol. This acronym stands for "Electro Plated Nickel-Silver", therefore it is not silver but a material obtained in England at the end of the eighteenth century. In that period, in fact, Galvani's scientific experiments allowed the introduction of various economical alloys into the European market, which had widespread diffusion above all thanks to this alloy and the so-called "white metal". In particular, during the nineteenth century there was the Elkington & Co. company which, having obtained a monopoly on the galvanic process, forced manufacturers to go to their headquarters in Birmingham to learn this process by paying a royalty and stamping their articles with the stamp of Elkington. At the same time this also happened in the United States, in particular in Philadelphia, where silver plating using a galvanic bath was introduced by Mead and subsequently by the three Rogers brothers, who joined together by founding a company with Mead. In Massachusetts, however, the productions of Babbit & Crossman and Reed were widespread, but the creative intuitions of the Gorham Corporation, founded in 1830 and soon becoming a partner of the company founded in New York by Charles L. Tiffany, were particularly appreciated. Thanks to the introduction of these electrogalvanic alloys, in England and subsequently in the USA, E.P.N.S. it progressively supplanted the Old Sheffield, commonly called Sheffield Plate, a material obtained by die-casting a copper plate onto two silver plates, a process discovered by chance by Thomas Bulsover while repairing his knife and which became widely used by the European bourgeoisie until second half of the eighteenth century.
