TitleJaccard's Jewelry Store
DescriptionPostcard of Jaccard's Jewelry Store
Historical ArticleThis early photographic post card shows Jaccard's jewelry store in its second location in Kansas City at 1034 Main, next door to the John Taylor Dry Goods Company. At left is a familiar downtown landmark, Jaccard's sidewalk clock. Show windows display china-globed lamps, punch bowls, vases and a cut glass water bottle.

Eugene G. E. Jaccard and Walter M. Jaccard, sons of D. C. Jaccard, left their father's St. Louis firm in 1888 and established a jewelry store in Kansas City at 815 Main. Later the firm expanded and moved to the 1034 Main address.

The firm moved to its present location at 1017 Walnut in 1906, and other stores are in the Country Club Plaza and the Ward Parkway Shopping Center. Walter B. Jaccard, a son of Eugene G. E. Jaccard, heads the firm today.

Currently Jaccard's is lending the Kansas City Public Library a large collection of plates for display. Plates of crystal, pewter, silverplate, porcelain and china are included. Private collectors, as well as Haviland and Spode china representatives, assisted in preparing the display.
