Hello! BPT Conn. Bead Chain (on chain, pull chain!) opened 1914! 100 year anniversary now! WOW made dog tags for war!
During WWII the company delivered various US and Canadian armed forces more than 22,000,000 Bead Chain® identification tag necklaces without a single reject. This achievement earned the company the Army-Navy Double EE flag and given a special commendation by the US Ordinance Department. Hello, 22 million without a reject! AND In early 1910, Calvin Bryant develops the first electric light pull (still found in many closets and basements today). Beaded chain was determined to be the best material for the pull chain, but poor quality chain from Austria forced Mr. Bryant to manufacture his own chain. A close friend, Gordon Goodridge, designed and built the first chain making machine in America, Together, along with Calvin’s son, Gerald, they form the Bead Chain Manufacturing Company, incorporated in March, 1914. Waldo Gerald “Gerry” Bryant, a recent graduate from Yale University, became Bead’s first President. WHO MADE THE LAMP?? NEED HELP has glass crystals and heavy brass toracat
