Newbridge Silverware, formerly known as Newbridge Cutlery, was founded in 1934 as a cutlery manufacturer. The company faced hardship right through the 1940s and a trade depression resulted in 1952 which forced large staff reductions. The 1990s saw a major change for the cutlery manufacturer, as they introduced a line of silver-plated jewellery to the main store in Newbridge. Today the company manufacturers cutlery, jewellery and other giftware

The Museum of Style Icons[edit]

The store in Newbridge contains an upstairs museum of style icons, such as Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. The museum contains clothes and artefacts associated with such stars. The most spectacular piece on display is the hot-pink, silk cocktail dress worn by Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's in 1961. The dress was acquired by Newbridge Silverware's CEO, Mr. William Doyle, for $160,000.
