The Jennings Brothers began their metalwork foundry in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1890 and remained in business until 1953. Jennings Brothers produced some of the most finely crafted art metal pieces that exist to this day. The company made bookends, candlesticks, animal figurines, jewelry boxes, and many other utility items. Their production methods necessitated meticulous attention to detail and did not lend itself to mass production. Consequently, they depended upon the handiwork of expert artists. Jennings Brother's metalwork is highly prized and collectible. The distinctive "JB" mark, which marked all of their products, is highly sought after by collectors. There is no other major metalwork foundry from this era with such high-quality finishes.
