Connecticut Foundry Company Description
Connecticut Foundry is believed to have manufactured solely in iron. A few examples of Connecticut Foundry items have been seen in bronze. However, the detail on these bronze examples is not pristine; there are substantial signs of wear on the otherwise pristine sets like "The Aviator," suggesting that someone performed bronze castings from a worn iron original, but the exact timing of this endeavor is unclear. Also, Connecticut Foundry bookends were almost exclusively made in simple patinated iron finish. Nonetheless, several examples of polychrome painted pairs have been discovered, including "The Last Trail," "Profanity," "The Storm," and "Yankee Clipper."
Connecticut Foundry was originally located in Rocky Hill, Connecticut. Most of their pairs are dated. The foundry mark of Connecticut Foundry is a C within a triangle, within a circle, which is often mistaken for a copyright symbol, despite the fact that most Connecticut Foundry pieces are also clearly marked COPR or Copyright. Connecticut Foundry was only known to make ‘L’ shaped bookends (nothing figural).
