History: In 1875 was founded the Wallace Brothers, a co-partnership of Robert Wallace, his sons Robert B., William J., Henry L., George H., Frank A. and his sons-in-law W.J. Leavenworth and D.E. Morris. The firm manufactured silverplate flatware on a base of cast steel and silverplated holloware. The holloware production ceased in 1879 and Wallace Brothers was acquired by the corporation of R. Wallace & Sons Mfg. Co.
