Was in the partnerships of Lemon & Kendrick with James Innes
Lemon 1831-1841 and later Kendrick & Son with William Carnes

other son, George P. Kendrick, joined with William Carnes Kendrick
and continued the business as jewelers under the name William Kendrick's Sons which remained in business

The Kalo Shop
Chicago, IL 1900-1970
Founded by Clara Barck Welles and a major influence in the American
Arts & Crafts Movement. Maker of handwrought sterling flatware,
holloware, jewelry and novelties. When The Kalo Shop first opened, a
variety of artistic goods were sold: textiles, copper and silver items,
leather goods, baskets, and jewelry. In 1912 a branch was opened in New York,
but was short lived. In 1914 Welles decided to focus on her handwrought copper
and silver items for which she was becoming well known. Many silversmiths who
would ater gain renown in their own right got their start at Kalo. In 1939 Welles
retired to California, and in 1959 she turned the shop over to four of her craftsmen.
When the last of the four died in 1970, The Kalo Shop closed its doors. See flatware patterns.
