Sellers of Antique Bookends, Vintage Glass, & Collectibles

Bradley and Hubbard, “Masters of Metalwork”- started out producing clocks, during the Civil War when markets opened west of the Mississippi.  Throughout the 1850s and 1860s they added other lines of household goods including sewing machines, call bells and match safes.

In 1859, with the discovery of oil in Titusville, Pennsylvania, B&H began producing kerosene burning lamps, which eventually replaced whale oil burning lamps.

By the 1890s B&H had showrooms in New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago.

Their high quality product lines of artistic household goods sold throughout the country at Marshall Field, Sears and Roebuck and Montgomery Ward.

In the 1920s and 1930s they produced a line of outstanding bronzed or polychromed cast iron bookends from molten iron poured into sand molds.  B&H bookends are noted for their heavy weight, fine finish and excellent detail.   They are extremely popular with collectors and consistently command premium prices in today’s market.  Some of their bookends are included in the Castle Collection at the Smithsonian Institution.
