Brass Tag Collection Oil No. 101
The C&P Brass Tag Jewelry Collection features vintage brass tags sourced from a hydraulics plant in Paducah, Kentucky. The tags were used for the company's "lockout/tagout" practice - a safety practice aimed at preventing injuries that could be caused by an unexpected startup of a piece of machinery or equipment undergoing maintenance. The tags were used to notify other employees that the device should remain in the safe or "off" position until the maintenance was complete.
When Priscilla saw a fellow picker’s Instagram post picturing a pile of the brass tags, she immediately arranged to purchase as many as her friend was willing to sell. The C&P Brass Tag Collection was born with the creation of necklaces, bracelets and other one-of-kind accessories. Since then, custom pieces have been made representing anniversary and birthday dates, and other numbers that mean something special to our clients.
All tags are stamped with 3 numbers, and have a lovely patina. If there’s a specific number combination you’d like, feel free to email us at CarlAndPriscillaCustom@gmail.com and we’ll work with you to make a custom piece just for you!
