Lunt Silversmiths began as Rogers, Lunt and Bowlen in 1902 when employee and engraver, George C. Lunt, purchased A. G. Towle & Son company. The name was changed to Lunt Silversmiths in 1935 and in late 2009 its name and inventory was sold to Reed & Barton. As an example of proof of their fine work, their Embassy Scroll pattern was chosen by the US government as its official tableware in all US embassies and consulates around the world.
