Kaldenberg Prize Pipe Paris Exhibition of 1867

The Kaldenberg Company of New York City was one of the largest American manufacturing facilities of meerschaum pipes and cheroot holders in competition with the William Demuth Company (WDC), and smaller establishments in the City and in New York state: August G. Fischer, Carl Kutschera, I. Hamburger, and Gustav Stehr.

When this company was awarded prizes at the Paris Exhibition of 1867 the following appeared in the news: Kaldenberg “...over all others, by the American Institute... having been acknowledged the best makers in this country of meerschaum pipes, holders, etc.” (The Round Table, No. 154–Vol. VII, January 4, 1868, 13).
