metal yard art
I am looking for a company by the name of Art Metal from Jamestown, NY?
I have an old metal desk made by Art Metal, Jamestown, NY USA. I bought the desk at a yard sale, I am looking to purchase a key for the desk. The closest that I have came is to a company in the Ukraine by the same name.
The largest employing concern (in Jamestown)was the Art Metal Construction Company, with two plants and 1,130 hands; the William Brodhead Mills second, with 809; and the Salisbury Wheel and Manufacturing Company, 335.
1887 – Jamestown Electric Light and Power Company, Art Metal, and WCA Hospital established.
There’s a company by that name in Ukraine that produces the type of stuff you are looking for, but they are probably not the company:
There’s ArtOne in Jamestown:
The Art Metal Company of Jamestown, New York, was awarded the world’s largest metal library equipment contract to supply the library’s furnishings and equipment. Their products employed no wood or other flammable materials, ensuring that the furnishings were fireproof. All of the furniture, from tables and Windsor chairs to lamps and cabinets, was fabricated of metal and other noncombustible materials.
It looks like the moved to North Carolina in the 70s:
Unfortunately, the progressives were proven to be correct. Jamestown suffered a massive blow when, after a long and protracted strike, Art Metal, the biggest remaining employer in the Jamestown area, closed its Jamestown plant and moved to North Carolina. In the same time frame, new discount stores such as Hills Department Store had moved into Jamestown, and with the loss of jobs and income cut deeply into the Bigelow customer base.
