- Identical examples with fancy clamps and “Patented, Feb 15, 1853”, This patent was granted to Charles Waterman, Meriden, CT.
- Sewing birds are also considered one of the items manufactured by Bradley & Hubbard, Meriden, CT, in the early 1850’s, Some dated models have identical stampings, but generally had floral castings on the clamp. ?-Could this be an early undated and plain version?
- It could probably be assumed the Bradley and Hubbard was the company of choice by Waterman for production and retailing??
