The Bachmann company originated in America in 1833, when Henry Carlisle began to produce vanity products made from horn, ivory and tortoiseshell. At this point, the business largely dealt with the manufacture of high-back Spanish combs for the ladies of the Southern States.

Following the American Civil War this business was lost. The manufacture of side combs, barrettes and other hair ornaments continued on a large scale along with that of hand-carved ivory umbrella handles. In 1899, the business was merged with that of Henry G. Bachmann, a German immigrant who was engaged in a similar business with his son, and given the name Bachmann Bros.
