I ran across this interesting trade card and wondered if any of our readers had knowledge of the firm. I have a note on a Benjamin Truell, jeweler and silversmith in New Hampshire, but have traced nothing on this partnership, nor its possible connection to him.

I especially like the line about not tarnishing in hot eggs!

Could be Alfred and Frank Lyman who were both born in New York State in the 1850's. Alfred was a nickel plater for sure in Clinton in 1900. There are Lyman Bros listed separately but same under the heading of nickel plater with G W Truell in the 1890 Clinton City Directory. Both Lyman brothers had multiple occupations.

George Washington Truell was born in New Hampshire in 1846. He is with his family in the 1850 U S Federal Census in Amherst, New Hampshire. It appears his father's name was Jacob and his mother was Louisa. They were both born in New Hampshire. There is a 65 old Sally Fletcher living with them who was born in Massachusetts. She is probably George's maternal grandmother.
