In 1824, Isaac Babbitt created a new metal
alloy while experimenting in his shop in Taunton, Massachusetts. He called his
discovery "Britannia metal." From it, he and a few
friends fashioned pewter ware of a higher quality than ever before possible.
Babbitt hired a group of innovative craftsmen including 2 great talents Henry G.
Reed and Charles E. Barton.
So important were these craftsmen that soon the company was manufacturing wares
that carried the name Reed & Barton. Their goods reflected the uncompromising
standards of excellence of the two founding fathers: At first in rich, heavy
silverplate, and later, after the fabulous silver discoveries in the American
West of the late 1800s, in .925 fine sterling silver.
