Sellers of Antique Bookends, Vintage Glass, & Collectibles

Founded in 1911 by the Startzman family, PMC produced casket hardware using permanent bronze mold slush-metal castings.  In the 1950s, the company began producing a line of slush-metal cast bookens using molds of their own design as well as molds acquired from Jennings Brothers and the K&O Company.

 In the 1970s, the company moved from Philadelphia to its present location in Lakeland, Florida where it still produces a line of quality bookends under the name, PM Craftsman. Company President Linda Startzman Schofield represents the third generation of the Startzmans to run the firm.
