Bates and Bacon antique jewelry
Based in Attleboro, Massachusetts, “Bates & Bacon” is one of the oldest and legendary jewelry makers of the 19-20th centuries. Its history is inextricably linked with the history of the country.
Joseph M. Bates joined “Skinner, Viall & Company” (founded in 1857) in 1858. Since that time, the company’s name changed to Bates, Capron & Williams. Finally, in 1867, he headed the company, and in partnership with George M. Bacon renamed the company to “Bates & Bacon”. Initially, the company manufactured rolled gold plated bracelets, and since 1882 they began production of watch cases. Since 1907, Bates & Bacon belonged to Tappan brothers, and since the 1920s to A. S. Blackinton and F. E. Tappan.
The company, destroyed by fire in 1898 and rebuilt, has changed several owners and ceased to exist during the WWII. Their high quality gold filled pocket watch cases and jewelry, including rolled gold, filled and plated bracelets, are highly collectible now.
