Reed & Barton was originally founded as Babbitt & Crossma in Taunton, Massachusetts in 1824--with the company later purchased by Henry G. Reed and business partner Charles E. Barton. In 1896, the company was awarded a Medal of Excellence at the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition. During the 1900s, Reed & Barton silver continued to be incredibly popular. By 1961, President John F. Kennedy was cutting his inaugural cake with a Reed & Barton Pointed cake knife.
