The Reed & Barton story began in 1824, when Isaac Babbitt created a new metal alloy – “Britannia metal” – in his Taunton, Massachusetts pewter shop. Babbitt joined forces with craftsmen Henry G. Reed and Charles E. Barton to produce this innovative, higher quality pewter ware. When Babbitt encountered financial difficulties, Reed & Barton offered to take control and began manufacturing products under their own names. The fledgling company’s goods reflected uncompromising standards of excellence, starting with its initial silverplate products and extending to the exquisite sterling silver creations that resulted from the silver discoveries of the late 1800s. The company has remained privately owned by the family of Henry Reed. Miller Rogaska Crystal, handmade stemware. Reed & Barton maintains its headquarters in Taunton, Massachusetts, once known as “Silver City” because of the number of silver companies operating there.
