  1. Hi! I am Gustave Fox's great-grandson, still living on Cincinnati where the company (later called Fox Nameplate Co. and then just Fox Company) existed until the 1970s, run by my father. Would love to e-mail or talk with you further about all this. Thanks, John Fox (JohnFoxMktg@gmail.com)

  2. I have a ribbon badge consigned for auction, the top bar pin reads Kentucky and ribbon reads member 1914 and suspended by the ribbon is an oval medallion with an anvil in the middle. on the back of the medallion is Gustave Fox co. cin. Do you know of reference source for ribbons/ badges made your family's company?

    Thanks John

    1. Sorry, I have no idea concerning your ribbon badge, I´m specialized in pre war car emblems only.

  3. Hi I have a badge from "RIVERVIEW PARK CHICAGO" with the greenduck shape stamp on the back side. I am trying to date this badge. Can you tell me when That shape stamp was first used and then stopped being used? Thanks, Dean Please e-mail me at RRGOODS@AOL.COM

  4. What is interesting is that I have worked in Marketing for 40+ years, and my son (continuing the male Fox lineage) worked for a design and "Branding" firm after college for several years. Then it hit us--Fox Company, making logo-ed emblems for cars and appliances, was essentially the first branding company in America.
