Fisher, Bruce & Company

From the Smithsonian Institution:

"Fisher, Bruce & Company, importers of china, earthenware, and glassware, were located on Market Street, Philadelphia. The firm dates to 1880, when it was known as Atherholt, Fisher and Company, at 519 Market Street.

By 1885 the company's name changed to Fisher, Son & Company.

By 1889, after George H. Ruth joined the firm, its name changed to Fisher, Son & Ruth. The following year, probably after the death of Samuel Fisher, Worthington Bruce joined the firm, and its name was changed to Fisher, Bruce & Company; in the same year the firm relocated to 221 Market Street.

The company stayed in the Fisher family for the remainder of its existence, with E. Monroe Fisher as President, from 1930. In the 1970s the company was sold and the business relocated to New Jersey."
