History of Jennings Brothers :
The Jennings Brothers began their metalwork foundry in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1891 and remained open until the early 1950s. Jennings Brothers produced some of the most finely crafted art metal pieces that exist to this day. Their product line ranged from bookends to candlesticks to animal figurines, etc. Their methods of production required meticulous techniques which did not lend themselves to machine-directed mass production, but rather depended upon the handiwork of expert artists, sculptors and metal craftsman. Jennings Brothers metalwork is highly prized and their distinctive "JB" mark, which marked all of their products, is highly sought after by collectors world-wide. Jennings employed many new immigrants to the U.S. and their designs had an international flair.
Jennings, at one point, had over 3000 pieces in their catalog. Their business peaked in the 1920 and 1930s. Many of their pieces were miniatures of well-known sculptures like the Seated Lincoln or the Lion of Lucerne. All Jennings Brothers pieces were made of cast white metal or spelter ... although they are often mistaken for bronze or even silver ... because of their high quality crafting and fine rich patination. T is no other major metalwork foundry from this era with finishes as durable as Jennings Bros and the complexity of their designs is highly prized.
