RAPAPORT... The parent company of Bailey Banks & Biddle, which claims to be the US’s oldest nationwide jeweler, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Texas, according to a court document.

Houston-based BBB Group estimated both assets and liabilities of up to $50,000 in the November 6 voluntary petition.

Joseph Trowbridge Bailey and Andrew Kitchen founded the company in 1832 as Bailey & Kitchen, according to its website. Over the years, it created important pieces in US history, including a mortuary medal to mark the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865. It changed its name to Bailey Banks & Biddle in 1878.

Last year, the retailer became tied up in the investigation into an alleged bank fraud in Nirav Modi’s global jewelry empire. The Indian tycoon’s American businesses funneled proceeds from the alleged fraud into Bailey Banks & Biddle to fund its operations, a US court examiner claimed.

The company closed its stores in Dallas and Plano, Texas, last year, leaving it with just the one shop in Houston, according to its website.

Jesse Aguinaga, attorney for the company, declined to comment.
