Windsor Pewter Box Jennings Bros Mfg Co
Here is a hand crafted Windsor pewter box made by the Jennings Brothers Manufacturing Company of Bridgeport, CT. It resembles a casket and we have seen it referred to as a cigarette box, a tea caddy, a snuff box or for playing cards. You can put whatever you like in it! It measures overall 7.25" x 3.25" x 4.25", the interior measures 6.75" x 2.25" and is 3" deep. It weighs three and a half pounds. The box in good condition.
This piece is made out of pewter and has four pewter feet holding the box off the table. There are also 2 sets of 4 indented lines surrounding the box (on near to top and one near the bottom). In between is inscribed, "From the 28th Street Warehouse Group in Appreciation of Your Loyal Friendship". The domed lid has been all hammered to give a textured design. The lid has a small grip on the front so that you can easily open it. Once opened you can see the wood style laminate interior with glass lid. The five dividers can be removed.
A little history of Jennings Brothers Mfg. Co. Windsor Pewter - Bridgeport, CT.:
The Jennings Brothers Metal Foundry was opened by the three Jennings Brothers in 1890 in Bridgeport, CT. Their offices started in two small wood buildings and their foundry in a brick building. Ultimately, they expanded to a larger factory building which was located on Elm Street in Bridgeport. They specialized in metal art and maintained a staff of artists and sculptors to craft their metal art objects ("Nouveau" metal art) which included clocks, bookends, statues, metal cases, candelabras and some silver-plated utensils.
