    To add my two cents to Kieren and Robert's explaination of C. Plath's
    relationship to Cassens & Plath, there was a similar situation with Weems &
    Plath of Washington, DC (later Annapolis, MD). After World War II, C. Plath
    went through a very difficult rebuilding period. With the decline of German
    shipping, they looked to gain a foothold in the US market. In 1953 they
    formed a partnership with P.V.H. Weems to sell C. Plath sextants and
    compasses, calling the venture Weems & Plath.
    
    Since the US Navy would not purchase foreign-made instruments, Lowe, Inc.,
    of New York was contracted to build sextants under license from C. Plath and
    bearing the Weems & Plath name. The US Navy Mark III sextant was a
    Lowe-built Plath.
