「History」 Made by PM Craftsman, Philadelphia. Founded in 1911 by the Startzman family, PMC produced casket hardware using permanent bronze mold slush-metal castings. In the 1950s, the company began producing a line of slush-metal cast bookends using molds of their own design as well as molds acquired from Jennings Brothers and the K&O Company. In the 1970s, the company moved from Philadelphia to its present location in Lakeland, Florida. That would date these bookends approximately 1950's to 1970's
