Keyston Bros.Born:1868 Died: Maker's Mark:
"KEYSTONE BROS. SAN FRANCISCO"
The Keyston Bros. Saddlery was founded by James Keyston who began by making buggy whips and eventually expanded the business to include a complete saddlery and harness supply. Keyston Bros. never produced their own bits and spurs but contracted with many of the same local makers that supplied other saddleries such as LD Stone or Main and Winchester. In 1906 the Keyston Bros. business was destroyed by an earthquake, but the company kept on and bought out some other saddleries and continued by selling through expanded catalog sales. Over time the company began selling other items and is actually still in business as of the time of this writing. Bits and spurs are typically marked “Keyston Bros. San Francisco” and can also be marked by the maker.
