Description
An inscription on the front of this sterilizer reads “PELTON / CRANE.” The Pelton & Crane firm began in Detroit in 1900, when Richard Pelton, a dentist, partnered with Earnest M. Crane, an electrical engineer. Their first product was the Pelton Electric Furnace, suitable for dental offices. The firm was incorporated in 1910, and moved to Charlotte, N.C., after World War II.
