Watson was a major manufacturer of sterling flatware and hollow-ware. It has showrooms in Chicago, New York and San Francisco
Prior to circa 1860, Caldwell advertised that they manufactured silver flatware and hollowware. After, the advertising dropped the word manufacturer. It seems that from circa 1860, the company focused on being retailer of silver rather than a manufacturer. Soon J. E. Caldwell & Co. become one of the major jewelry and silver retailers in Philadelphia.
James E. Caldwell ran the business until he died in 1881. His son, J. Albert Caldwell, ran the business until his death in 1914 and he was succeeded by his son J. Emmett Caldwell.
