~ ~ Cross Reference Guide for Rainwater's book, "American Jewelry Manufacturers" ~ ~

_____________________________

__________________________

The material below is being offered as a reference tool only, when using Dorothy T. Rainwater's, "American Jewelry Manufacturers". While the book 'does' have a cross-reference of 'Trade Names' on pages 265 - 272, I plan to also incorporate 'figural' marks.

This will be a time consuming task, so please bear with me. :-) I have gone through 20 pages of her book, thusfar, and have many more to go! Once I finish 'my' cross-references, I'll go back and verify that all of the 'Trade Names' on pages 265-272, of Ms. Rainwater's book are also included.

This list is meant only for a reference tool for Jewelry Collectors, and is not meant to replace the fine work of Ms. Rainwater.

__________________________________________________________

Note: I have described the figurals as logically as possible (i.e. a figural of an 'arrow' mark, will be listed under "A".) Also, if I encountered very similar marks, I listed all pages where 'possible' matches might be found.

If you have any questions, or any corrections for me, please feel free to contact me at my email address: asiteforme@email.com
