Emmons, no longer in business, was founded by Charles Stuart
in Newark, NY. He also founded it's sister company, Sarah Coventry.
There is a thorough and interesting discussion of this manufacturer
in Lillian Baker's "Fifty Years of Collectible Fashion Jewelry,
1925 - 1975. According to Lillian Baker----the Emmons Co. was
Incorporated in Feb. 1949 and then Sarah Coventry came into being
8 months later. It was only sold at home parties---mostly in the
50's and is now collectible and getting scarce.
Sarah Coventry had a Lifetime Guarantee...the cards stated
"may be sent back for repair to: P.O. Box 7899, Warwick, RI 02887.
Please include handling charge of $1.50." I'm not sure if this
is still being honored. Sarah Coventry discontinued operations
and home parties in 1984. The better sets and pieces are expected
to rise in price and every collector should have a few pieces
of Sarah Coventry in their collection.
