This pattern is shown in the only known company catalog. Although undated, the catalog was published between 1905 and 1910 judging by the names of the officers listed. The company was founded in the 1890's, and seems to have closed by 1911. It is known to have used blanks from the Pairpoint Corporation but probably also used them from other sources as well.
