Frank M. Whiting Co.

F.M. Whiting & Co. was founded in 1878 in North Attleboro, MA. It became Frank M. Whiting & Co. in 1896 and continued manufacturing under that name until the firm was acquired by Ellmore Silver Co. circa 1940. Frank M. Whiting Co. is not to be confused with Whiting Silver Co. - a different entity also from Attleboro (and later New York City) and founded by William Dean Whiting.

The company became well known for manufacturing a variety of different sterling silver items such as silverware, pitchers, bowls, tea sets, candlesticks and much more.
