Obituary

ORIN L. COOMBS


On Monday evening, July 1, Orin L. Coombs, of Clark & Coombs, Attleboro, Mass., was stricken with apoplexy while walking in the yard of his residence. He became unconscious and died on the Wednesday following, his death removing an esteemed and industrious citizen from the community.

The deceased gentleman was born on August 28, 1827, at Northbridge, Mass. Arriving at manhood he learned the jewelry trade with Daniel Evans of Attleboro Falls, and was at one time foreman of the burnishing room of the Gorham Manufacturing Co. Moving to North Attleboro in 1861, he, after a short service with W. D. Whiting, formed a partnership with William Clark, their object being to carry on business as burnishers. Later he became foreman of the burnishing room of the newly formed Whiting Mfg. Co., which position he held until 1875, when he again formed a partnership with his old associate, William Clark, under the style of Clark & Coombs, for the manufacture of jewelry. The business has been successfully conducted ever since.

Mr. Coombs was an eminent example of a faithful, diligent and honest business man, as well as a loving husband and father. Mr. Coombs leaves a wife and a son, Frank Orin Coombs, a member of the firm of Frank Mauser & Co.

In the window of the Mauser Mfg. Co., 298 Fifth Ave., there was displayed for several days, last week, the punch bowl which the German War Veterans of America are to present, Feb. 16, to the Emperor and Empress of Germany, on the occasion of their silver wedding anniversary. The bowl, which is a remarkably elaborate and handsome product, made of gold, silver, bronze, stone and historic woods, was illustrated and described in The Circular-Weekly, Nov. 29, 1905. The original design, drawn by Alfred Lenz, has been placed on exhibition in the National Sculpture Society’s Hall, 215 W. 57th St.

Frank Mauser & Co., silversmiths, of North Attleboro, Mass., are exhibiting some beautiful specimens of hand-chased work in repousse scroll work and rococo patterns now so much in vogue. Superb examples of this style of work are shown in toilet sets, shaving mugs, cups, cigarette cases, fine stationery novelties, napkin rings, match boxes, etc., as well as in hollow ware, such as berry sets, pitchers and bowls. They have recently patented a rococco design called the aigrette, which is one of the most ornate offered to the trade to-day. All of their handiwork is of sterling quality and finished in the highest style known to the silversmith’s art.

The Mauser Mfg. Co. Will Occupy Nearly Their Entire Building

The steadily increasing business of the Mauser Mfg. Co., 14 E. 15th St., New York, has at length made it necessary for them to enlarge the scope of their plant. When all the changes will have been completed they will occupy nearly the entire building at 14 E. 15th St., and will have added far more than double to their present facilities. The store floor will be given over entirely to show purposes. Silversmiths and bench-workers will work upon the first floor; the second floor will be occupied by spinners, toolmakers and chasers; the third will be devoted to the shipping room and the polishing and gilding rooms; the fourth will be utilized as a store room and workshop of the designers and die-sinkers; and the cellar will contain the large stamping and rolling mills. One feature made possible by these improvements will be promptness in shipping goods. Mr. Kolb, of the company, speaking to a Circular representative, promised to get the prompt shipping of goods down to an “ art.” The company's product will necessarily be increased proportionate to the increase in the size of their factory, and interesting things in the way of new enterprise are hinted at by Mr. Kolb.

The Mauser Mfg. Co., 14 E. 15th St., New York, whose ability for creating thoroughly salable lines is widely appreciated, have augmented the strength of their stock list with a collection of new and attractive designs. In answer to the query, “Will you push any particular specialty?” Mr. Kolb, of the company, said: “No; we’re in everything with both feet. No matter if it’s toilet ware or novelties, mounted cut glass or table ware, we’re as strong in the one as we are in the other.”

F. Mauser & Co., silversmiths, 33 Union Square, New York, report a good fall trade with plenty of orders ahead. Their removal to the city has been fully as advantageous as they expected, and in consequence they have been enabled to enlarge and improve their line in many ways. In stationery and toilet novelties they present a fine assortment of patterns mainly in the popular rococo styles. In hollow ware, bowls, pitchers, etc., they also show some fine examples of the art.

The Mauser Mfg. Co. have satisfied a judgment for $4,246.52, entered Dec. 21, 1896, by R. J. Mackey. The judgment was the outcome of a suit by Mackey, a former employe of the company, to recover damages for injuries received in their factory. Mackey’s hand was crushed by the fall of a hammer June 27, 1893, and he thereupon sued the company for $10,000 damages. The suit was tried last December in the Supreme Court and resulted in a verdict for Mackey for $4,000. The Mauser Mfg. Co. appealed from the judgment, hut recently settled the suit out of court and the appeal was dismissed Wednesday without costs.
