HISTORY AND MARKS
The firm's origin in 1890 when Boston silversmith Timothy Tuttle was commissioned to copy old English silver. Tuttle dated his original production in the English custom with the crest of the reigning monarch.
In 1915 the company was listed as Tuttle Silver Co and by 1922 it was incorporated.
During the term of office of President Calvin Coolidge, Tuttle adopted the custom of marking each piece with a crescent and the initials of the incumbent President of the United States.
The Roman numeral under the crescent indicates on what year of the presidency the piece was produced.
The mark is completed by the pine tree, a patriotic symbol taken from the ancient Pine Tree Shilling of Massachusetts colony.
In 1958 Tuttle Silversmiths was purchase by R. Wallace & Sons Mfg Co.
In 1986 Wallace was purchased by Syratech Corporation and both Tuttle and Wallace operate under the ownership of Lifetime Brands.
