TOWLE SILVERSMITHS - Newburyport, MA
Towle Mfg.Co was founded in 1882. The origin of the business dates back to the Moulton family who settled in Newbury, Massachusetts (later Newburyport) at the end of the 18th century.
After six generations of Moulton silversmiths, Joseph Moulton sold in 1857 the silver business he inherited from William Moulton IV, to his father's two apprentices, Anthony Francis Towle and William P. Jones to form Towle & Jones, Co.
In 1971 they bought
Poole Silver Co.
In 1873, the son of Anthony Francis Towle, Edward Bass Towle, was added to the business, and the name was changed to A.F. Towle & Son. It was in business through 1902, at which point their dies were purchased by Rogers, Lunt and Bowlen, who were later to become Lunt Silversmiths.
In 1882, Anthony Francis Towle, while still owning A.F. Towle & Son, established the Towle Manufacturing Co.
The trademark of a large script "T" enclosing a rampant lion was adopted in 1890.
Towle, was acquired in 1990 by Syratech Corporation, a company which makes tabletop, giftware, and seasonal items. Its tabletop and giftware lines include sterling silver, silver-plated, and stainless steel flatware and hollowware under the Wallace Silversmiths, Towle Silversmiths, and International Silver Company brand names.
