Vintage Bracelet Signed SO Bigney and Co Amethyst Bangle Bracelet circa 1900s. In 1900, just over half of the town's 11,335 residents were employed in the jewelry-making industry. Like the precious metal mesh turned out at Whiting & Davis in North Attleboro today, jewelry is intertwined in the fabric of life here. Captains of industry formed familial and corporate bonds. Generations of workers passed through the same factory gates.
Work merged with play at companysponsored social clubs, picnics, and athletic and bowling leagues. Civic monuments such as the Attleboro Public Library, the Attleboro YMCA, Capron Park and Sturdy Memorial Hospital were endowed by scions of the jewelry trade.
In the 19th century and early 20th century, communities tended to develop specialized industries, said area historian William Hana. In Attleboro, it was jewelry; in Taunton, it was silver; in Brockton, it was shoes. The item "ESTATE ANTIQUE VICTORIAN BRACELET SIGNED S.
