Since that time additional facts have come to light and the identity of the "TH" maker has been revealed. Earlier this year while reviewing early issues of the Jewelers Circular (a jewelry trade journal founded in 1869) I came across an intriguing notice in a 1919 issue reporting that the Irving Manufacturing Co. (formerly Irving Heidelscheimer) had incorporated and changed its name to Heidell & Trow Co. The new firm was to maintain the workshop and operations of the predecessor and was to be managed by Irving Heidell and George Swift Trow. Heidell & Trow seemed a likely suspect for the mysterious "TH" maker.
