Pairpoint Labels From 1900 until the Bryden Period
Pairpoint was not known, with some noted exceptions, to permanently sign or identify their products; paper labels were used instead. Most have not survived the years. As the Middle Period evolved into the Gundersen (1938-1952), and then the Gundersen-Pairpoint (1952-1957) years, the use of labels that survived increased. Many of these were on a foil paper that was reasonably durable. Once Robert Bryden took control during the late 1950s, labeling was very prolific. Except for his foil "Made in Spain" label, his later labels were paper and had a very poor adhesive; they stayed in place until they were touched by a collector many years later.
The "LACQUERED" oval label will be found on Pairpoint's metalware products, notably the Fine Arts Line that ended around 1938.
You will also see examples of "Private Brand" labels. More explanation of these labels may be found in the "News & Articles" section of this website.
