I have been reading through the posts on the forum about the history of J R Gaunt with great interest. They are fascinating. Thank you to those who have researched and shared the information.

I have been searching on the internet and notice there is now a J R Gaunt London & Birmingham website (http://www.jrgaunt.co/) at Warstone Works, Warstone Parade East, that shows the firm as re-established as of 2010. There is also no longer any history of J R Gaunt on the Firmin website. I also found a reference online that a company registered as J. R. Gaunt London Ltd. was formed to restrike Gaunt's line of British badges. Is there more that has occurred in recent history that anyone can confirm?

- Michael

Ticker Riley, excellent reading. I didn't know anything about Gaunts (Until now) it's like reading a book, interesting stuff.

Default Earlier posts

Someone better qualified than me in navigating the Forum might be able to find the link to an earlier post from a year or two ago in which I listed a Gaunt sample card from about 1908 and a very large catalogue from the same period. The card showed some interesting badges which were a mixture of British and Colonial, put there to show the various finishes and quality that Gaunt produced. The book showed prices for each item (which a salesman would have used) and also the incredible range of Gaunt products: not just badges but swords, buttons, bullion items etc etc in colour. They also had a few "old and curious" badges and buttons. They certainly were!
