Essential Reference - Company History (Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufactures)

The highly respected American firm of Whiting Manufacturing Company was originated by Albert T. Tift and William D. Whiting as Tift & Whiting in 1840 to manufacture jewelry. The firm later added ladies' silver combs and small hollowware. The company became Whiting Manufacturing Company in 1866.

In 1910 the company was moved to Bridgeport, Connecticut where a large plant was erected and a complete line of silverwares was produced. The company was purchased by Gorham in 1926 and was moved to Providence, Rhode Island.
