The first mention of the trademark “Plainville Stock Co” dates back to August 1886. According to other sources, the company has been in business since 1874 and is still in business. However, the last mention of the company was in 2008, and highly likely the company ceased to exist. Also, the website of the company (plainvillestock.com) with possible information is not available any more.
The company managers registered and renewed P.S. Co four times, including 17 July 1905, 1931, 14 March 1962, and the fourth renewal in 1968. Accordingly, the list of company founders includes several people. Among them Daniel H. Corey, Edward P. Bennett, Albert W. Burton, William H. Rogers, David Reed, Bradford Corbin and more.
Located in East Taunton city of Bristol, Massachusetts state, P.S. Co produced excellent quality silver plated and 10K gold filled jewelry. In addition to precious metals and their alloys, the jewelers of the company used precious stones, glitter in enamel, multicolor crystals and rhinestones. Traditionally, the marking on the back side of any decoration included the initials P.S. Co, sometimes with “gf” (gold filled).
Their official listings included jewelry for personal wear and adornment. Namely, earrings, pendants, crosses, lockets, tie tacks, pins, brooches, and rings. Their older, vintage items are certainly well worth searching for and collecting.
