Even with 364 days to prepare, most people fall behind on holiday gift shopping. They forget to allow time for baking, menu planning and finding something to wear to the office party.

If this describes you, then you’re in the right place.
Reed & Barton: A History Of Beautiful Design
For nearly two centuries, the name Reed & Barton has been synonymous with superior craftsmanship and timeless elegance. The company is family-owned and is one of the oldest silversmiths in the U.S. It is largely known for its popular flatware patterns, but it manufactures hundreds of other items that delight collectors or become cherished family heirlooms.
A History in Silver
Reed & Barton was founded under another name in Massachusetts in 1824. Its earliest products were made of Britannia metal, a pewter alloy appreciated for its smooth, silvery finish. Many are surprised to learn that the Oscar statuette is made of Britannia dipped in gold. In subsequent years, Reed & Barton designers expanded their skills with pewter, silverplate and sterling silver.
In 1858, when silver was discovered in Nevada, Reed & Barton capitalized on the increased demand for solid pieces. Not only was silver durable and pleasing to the eye, but it was easy to melt down and convert to currency during hard times.
