-- Reed & Barton is a prominent silversmith manufacturer based in the city of Taunton, Massachusetts, since 1824. Its products include sterling silver and silverplate flatware. The company has produced many varieties of britannia and silver products since Henry G. Reed and Charles E. Barton took over the failing works of Isaac Babbitt in Taunton. Today, the company operates a factory store at the plant site, an outlet store at Wrentham Premium Outlets in Wrentham, Massachusetts, and an online store as well. The company has remained privately owned by the family of Henry Reed.
