The history of Towle Silver is rooted in the craftsmanship and artistry of the Moulton family of England. Starting with William Moulton II, a tradition of craftsmanship and artistry would be built by six generations of Moultons including William Moulton IV, who would apprentice a young Anthony F. Towle. After years of diligent study, Anthony decided to start his own business upon the retirement of William IV. Using the incredible Moulton family knowledge he had acquired, Anthony Towle and partner William P. Jones would buy the Moulton family stock to form Towle & Jones, Co. in 1857. The company found firm footing and a warm reception in the silver industry and market at large. The current and very familiar backstamp we see today, the Towle "T" enclosed by a lion, was adopted around 1890. The emblem is rumored to have been designed by Anthony himself, using the family coat of arms as inspiration. The year 1890 also saw the production of the first hollowware lines (tea sets and other pieces) at Towle. Patterns like Candlelight, produced since 1934, and Old Master , produced since 1942, have consistently drawn hordes of dedicated followers. Today, Towle embodies all of the original principles set forth by the Moulton family, and used so wisely by Anthony Towle. The Towle Silver legacy of great craftsmanship, beautiful design, and quality will ensure its continued success in the silver market. Hammersmith-Continental is just one of many examples of Towle’s high-quality craftsmanship.
