Webster & Co silver bib holder this is a silver device used to hold the bib used to protect the clothing while the child is eating.
It consists of a short chain with a clasp at its two extremities.
Both clasps bear maker's mark of Webster Company, North Attleboro, Massachusetts.
Webster Company was founded in 1869 by George K. Webster under the name of G.K. Webster and Company. After his death (1894) the firm became Webster Co. In 1950 it became a subsidiary of Reed & Barton of Taunton. The primary production of the firm has always been articles made in sterling silver. Mostly of them are baby goods, dresser-ware and picture frames.
