Maker The Embossing Company

Maker Details The Embossing Company has a long history in the toy business. Established in 1870 in Albany, New York by famous plastics investor John Wesley Hyatt and his brothers Charles and Isaiah, it continued well into the late 1900s and may still be in business. John Wesley Hyatt is famous for inventing the celluloid billiard ball which replaced the ivory ball common in the 1800s. His materials were used in early versions of The Embossing Company's dominos and checkers pieces. In the late 1900s, the company imported toys lines such as Meccanno from Europe.
