With roots going back as far as 1801 and the establishment of the USA's first copper rolling mill, a number of mergers took place in the early 20th century, culminating in the establishment of Revere Copper and Brass Incorporated in 1929. During the following decade the company branched out from its production of goods for the industrial and construction sectors to market giftware aimed at the domestic market, including Peter Müller‐Munk's elegant Normandie streamlined chrome‐plated jug of 1935. The company was also known for its Revere Ware range of cooking utensils first introduced in 1939 and designed by W. Archibald Welden. In 1988 the company was taken over by Corning Glass Works.
