Silvertone Records was a record label manufactured for Sears, Roebuck and Co. for sale in their chain of department stores and through mail order

Silvertone Records were manufactured 1916–1928, and then revived briefly in 1940–1941. Early releases were single-sided lateral-cut gramophone records; in the late 1910s double-sided discs began to be released. Most discs were manufactured by Columbia Records, while some were made by Paramount Records and Gennett Records. Earlier in the label's history, it was used to supplant its sister label Oxford Records.

Silvertone’s familiar tan label, introduced in late 1923 or early 1924, signaled a new production policy. Instead of relying on a single supplier and risking a repeat of the Federal debacle, Sears decided to contract production to numerous manufacturers. The company assigned blocks of catalog numbers to each of its contractors; thus, master sources for most tan-label issues can be determined from the catalog series:

 3190–3400 = Columbia budget series, including reissues of earlier Columbia masters
