Bit O'History: Augustus Chase established the Waterbury Manufacturing Company in 1876. Around 1900 it was renamed Chase Metal Works and was a major U.S. government supplier during World War I. An aggressive marketing campaign introduced Chase to the home consumer market in 1928. The "Centaur" mark was created (a centaur holds a bow in the midst of a hunt or chase). These were the years of Art Deco style and Chase became one of the largest producers of high quality deco-style products for the home. During World War II they once again converted to wartime production needs. After the war ended, Chase chose not to resume making consumer products and their most famous works ceased.
