Gallery Label: 

In 1837, Charles Leonard was taken in as a financial partner to help stabilize the firm and its finances--changing the company’s name to Leonard, Reed, and Barton. Leonard's share of the company was later purchased by Charles Barton and Henry Reed. Throughout the 1840’s, the “Leonard, Reed, and Barton” backstamp was faded out of production. The new backstamps simply read, “Reed and Barton.”
