Hello Bobbie -

Rainwater lists the Majestic Silver Company as having been founded in 1910 as the Regal Silver Manufacturing Company. They don’t seem to have retained the original name for very long, but “…in the early 1930’s a separate related firm, The Regal Specialty Mfg. Co., began the manufacture of silverplate and stainless steel flatware.” Both of these companies are isted in New Haven, CT rather than NY, but no location is given for the original Regal Silver company.
