Over the years, Reed & Barton has evolved into a diversified tabletop company composed of several divisions.
The Reed & Barton Silversmiths division continues to produce a wide range of fine sterling silver, silverplated, and stainless steel tableware and gifts, including flatware, serveware, and holloware, as well as picture frames, Christmas ornaments, baby gifts, and musicals.
The company opened selling houses in New York City and Chicago. Warren - called the Third Dimension Beauty collection - that would prove to be its most popular.
The company’s success brought prosperity to Wallingford. Rose Point (1934), Sir Christopher (1936), Stradivari (1937), Grande Baroque (1941), Grand Colonial (1942), and Romance of the Sea (1950) combine timeless elegance with the quality craft for which Wallace is known.

Years passed and Wallace's reputation for excellence in silversmithing continued to grow.
