Catalog, Ludwig Hartmann & Eidam, Wien, ca. 1880

This late 19th C. catalog is from one of the foremost manufactories of meerschaum pipes and cheroot holders, Ludwig Hartmann & Eidam (Eidam means son), Wien (Vienna), Austria. Little is known about the company's history, other than two facts: it was founded in 1829, and it received the Médaille de 1ère classe at the Exposition Universelle, 1867, for its exceptional craftsmanship.

This catalog contains many more pages of pipes and smoking accessories. What is illustrated here is a fraction of the company's product line.
