Jewelry Findings Manufacturer
|(PRWEB) March 16, 2007 -- The
50th Annual Rotary Auction, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Attleboro,
will take place on March 19, 2007. As an Attleboro business with roots
extending over 100 years, Guyot Brothers has enjoyed participating in the
auction for many years, usually with a sterling silver brooch or earrings,
made with jewelry findings manufactured by the company, however, this year
bring the 50th anniversary of the auction, the company has chosen to
donate a rare print from an antique copper plate etching, hand engraved by
the founder of the company, Numa Guyot. The etching is dated 1892 and it
is an extraordinarily detailed piece of art.
"Guyot Brothers Co., Inc. was founded on the creative genius, talent, and attention to detail that Numa possessed. Numa came to America at the turn of the 20th century with only his tools, and a desire to take part in the promise that America offered. Four generations later, we are proud to continue the tradition of manufacturing high quality, detailed decorative brass stampings for the costume jewelry and related arts trades," stated Andrea Guyot Twombly, Vice-President of the company.
"By donating this enchanting print to the Rotary auction, we are able to take part, even if only in a small portion, in some of the many ways the Rotary Club of Attleboro benefits our small city, some of which include scholarships, Attleboro Special Olympics, local soup kitchens, project D.A.R.E., Christmas for Kids, and the Attleboro Art Museum.
Nationally, New Orleans hurricane victims and the Cancer Walk were helped by member donations, as well were international efforts including The Pure Water Campaign and the Polio Eradication Program.
This year's auction will be broadcast live on Attleboro's local Comcast cable television station and as always will generate local excitement as the bidding proceeds.
