Additional Information: 

Bastian Brothers Company was opened in 1895 in Rochester, New York by siblings Theron and Frederick Bastian. Originally a jewelry store, the company quickly began producing customized badges, paperweights, lapel pins, and award products. Bastian Brothers is a totally unionized firm, and all of its products continue to be made in the United States. Its employees wore buttons as a form of employee identification. Though most have a small window in the front of the button, behind which a photograph is placed, some only include the employee number.
