Peter L. Krider & Co. (1821-1895)


Krider began apprenticing in 1835 with silversmiths John Curry and R. & W. Wilson in Philadelphia. In addition to his classical training, he accepted a role as a journeyman for Obadiah Rich, a leading Boston silversmith. Krider began producing works independently in 1850 and formed his own shop in Philadelphia. He partnered with John W. Biddle from 1860-1870, and the firm was known as Krider & Biddle. Biddle managed the business during the Civil War when Krider enlisted in the Union Army. Throughout his career, Peter Krider made a variety of goods and gained notoriety for producing high quality medals, including those for the Centennial exhibit in Philadelphia. In addition, he made hollowware for several Philadelphia retailers such as J.E. Caldwell and Bailey and Company.
