Just sharing....

I was researching something else when I just happened to make this connection between a patent by S. O. Bigney and an advertisement for S. O. Bigney & Company. For the fobs in the advertisement there maybe a better patent but that research would have been a bigger distraction and will have to wait for another time.

S. O. Bigney is listed in Rainwater’s American Jewelry Manufacturers.

In 1879 Sidney Osborne Bigney with Charles A Marsh formed the firm Marsh & Bigney which manufactured jewelry at North Attleborough, Massachusetts in the Stephen Richardson Building.

Prior to forming this partnership which was a forerunner to his own company once he bought out Charles Marsh in 1894, Sidney spent eight years with Pate (Francis G), Draper (Francis S) & Bailey (Francis S) where he mastered stamping and tool making and gained a thorough and practical knowledge of the jewelry business.
