Among SEG's signature items were small dish sets for children, which could feature the child's name on request.

SEG began with a friendship in 1890s Boston between Edith Brown, an artist from Nova Scotia, and Edith Guerrier, a librarian who ran reading and study clubs for young women. With the financial backing of Helen Storrow, a Boston philanthropist descended from noted abolitionists and feminists Lucretia Coffin Mott and Martha Coffin Wright, they launched SEG.
