Aluminum Novelties

Aluminum seems to be destined to play an important part in domestic economy. It is entering into many articles of everyday use and is showing its adaptability to various purposes.

The illustration herewith given shows the design of a paper knife which can be utilized for opening letters, &c. This can be furnished to the trade or any manufacturer stamped with views of Niagara Fallsls or any other suitable device; or it can be had stamped with the name of a firm upon the handle, as shown in the illustration. It is light, convenient and tasteful.

This article is made by Kelley & McBean, Niagara Falls, N. Y., a firm which manufactures the largest line of aluminum goods for the stationery trade, besides a large variety of other novelties in silver and plated ware for the same class of trade.

This firm has a new and handsome catalogue which illustrates numerous articles of merit which are likely to find ready sale with stationers. The trade should send for this catalogue so that they may understand and appreciate just what the firm mentioned has in hand.

Harry E. Kelley of Kelley & McBean, Niagara Falls, N. Y , died on Friday, 8th inst. Mr. Kelley was born at Toulon, Ill., in 1864 and settled in Niagara Falls about 15 years ago. For some time he was superintendent of the works of the Oneida Community, during which time he invented and secured patents on several small articles. including chains, hardware specialties, etc.. About three years ago he became associated with F. M. Woolworth in the manufacture of patented articles, and the firm opened a factory on Ferry avenue near Third. Later Mr. Woolworth retired and H. W. McBean became a partner in the business, the style becoming Kelley & McBean. A short time ago the plant was moved into a new and larger building, where a remunerative business has been built up.

The manufacturing works now operated by the Kelley & McBean Company were established in 1891, and the present company was organized in 1895, for the manufacture of silver plated ware, silver and aluminum souvenir goods and advertising novelties, and patent dog collars, chains, etc. The officers of the company are H. W. McBean, president; D. M. Kelley, vice-president; S. J. Devlin, secretary and treasurer.

Carter Novelty Co. - Kokomo - 1900


The Carter Novelty Co., of Kokomo, Ind., has sent us a blue print of its combination comb and brush, which is to be manufactured of aluminum with the exception of the bristles. The print of the brush shows that, fastened to the back, is a small comb which is useful in combing the mustache or hair, and is also used to hold the brush in the inside band of the hat. The brush itself is for the hat and clothes, and the company believes that it will become popular, for it will save many a tip to both the resident and travelling public.

THE ALUMINUM NOVELTY BUSINESS

BY JOSEPH KOENIG

The aluminum novelty business seems to be at a standstill as far as the development of new forms and designs are concerned. Very few new goods that would be called novelties are now being brought out, the erstwhile manufacturers of the novelties have followed these goods with the staple lines, without bringing out many new articles. Of course these goods are not now a novelty as they were once, simply because they were made of aluminum. This part of the novelty has disappeared forever. It is now necessary that new forms, new constructions and new applications, as to the uses, be produced and developed, and this part of the novelty line has not progressed of late.

The inventor does not seem to pay much attention to the novelty business and what new things are produced by inventors are in the main so crude and impractical that the manufacturer cannot adopt them. There is really not so much invention needed as there is skillful designing, and in designing we fall woefully behind our German competitors in variety and taste, not especially in the aluminum goods line, but in all metal lines. The designer of a novelty should not only have artistic taste and culture, but he must also know the practical side of the use to which the article is to be put, in order that he may fulfill his aspirations and make his ideas a success; but in this we are lacking.

A good many goods introduced formerly as novelties have now become staple, and most of the work turned out in the aluminum factories is on staple lines. House numbers, salt and pepper shakers, cups and household goods, are no longer considered novelties although there is plenty of opportunity for novelties in that field. The former novelties, such as puff boxes, match safes, picture frames, etc., have lost their charm in the forms produced, and it takes new designs to keep up interest in them.

A great encouragement to produce new shapes and designs would be a law or court ruling that an original design placed on the market could not be copied by another manufacturer, which could be regarded as unfair competition. This would give the designer and originator a chance to get new things on the market and establish an individuality, which at present is not possible. No one wants to spend fifty to a hundred dollars every time that a new thought strikes him for patents, at least not until he sees that the article meets with a ready sale and then it is too late to get protection.

The aluminum novelty business now needs the small manufacturer with sufficient originality and practical sense to develop new lines and shapes. The advertising novelties, especially, are in need of this new inspiration. This line can only be kept up by a total change each year. Aluminum signs, pocket pieces, and other personal wares need reconstruction in order to get them out of the present rut.

Of late there have been published reports that The Bay State Aluminum Company, of Quincy, Mass., and the Star Aluminum Company, of Doylestown, Ohio, would consolidate their interests and move the Bay State plant to Doylestown. Manager Ward of the Bay State Aluminum Company, informs us that while negotiations have been in progress toward the uniting of the two plants, that nothing definite has been determined upon and that the latest proceedings in the negotiation indicate that there is little possibility of the two plants being made into one. The Doylestown concern has manufactured combs and novelties and the Bay State Company manufactures aluminum cooking utensils and spun goods.

ALUMINUM COMBINATION

WOOSTER, Ohio, May 20.—The combine of the Star Aluminum Company, of Doylestown, and the Bay State Aluminum Company, of Massachusetts, has been effected. Negotiations were conducted by Attorney W. C. Spencer, of Akron, who is vice-president of the Star Aluminum Company.

The Bay State concern will remove its plant to Doylestown, where the plant of the Star Aluminum Company will be enlarged to provide accommodation for the extra equipment. The capital stock of the combine will represent increases of the stock of both companies, and more Akron and Doylestown capitalists are interested than before the combine was effected.

The principal product of the Doylestown plant has been combs, but the Bay State Aluminum Company manufactured cooking utensils along with other goods. Aluminum products of all kinds will be manufactured by the new company.

Mr. W. A. Slocum, traveling salesman for the Aluminum Manufacturing Company, of Two Rivers, Wis., made this spring a trip to Havana and the Southern States. He reports a fair trade for his first trip to Cuba and for a man not understanding the Spanish language. He believes that Cuba and the West Indies in general will prove a growing trade for the manufacturers of aluminum novelties. In expressing his views as to why the aluminum trade at the Charleston Exposition was such a disappointment, Mr. Slocum said that the exhibits were worthy and interesting, but the Fair was held in a comparatively poor section of the country, and that with the light attendance there naturally resulted no large purchase of aluminum goods. In this respect the Charleston Fair was in decided contrast to the Pan-American.

The Aluminum Manufacturing Company, of Two Rivers, Wis., report that their business during the past year has been very good and the prospects in the aluminum industry seem to be as bright as ever. The company finds it necessary to constantly place new goods on the market, and in a single year they have made upwards of fifty new articles. This requires an immense amount of die and experimental tool work, but the company have to make this outlay in order to keep abreast of the times.

One of the prettiest conceits in aluminum is a match-safe in the shape of an old-fashioned fireplace with a swinging crane and pot. The mantelpiece over the fire-place is so arranged as to accommodate two boxes, one for the live matches and the other for those that have been used. Dealers report this to be a taking novelty that for the short time it has been on the market, has had a phenomenal sale.

REYMOND & GOTTLOB

831, Broadway, and 18, Maiden Lane, and Havemeyer Building, 26 Cortlandt Street, New York


Image
Reymond & Gottlob - New York - 1898

Reymond & Gottlob - New York - 1899


Reymond & Gottlob, proprietors of the New York Pure Aluminum Co., dealers in aluminum fancy goods, jewelry, tableware, etc., 830 Broadway, Wednesday opened a down-town branch store, at 18 Maiden Lane.

Source: The Jewelers' Circular and Horological Review - 31st October 1894


Over one hundred varieties of aluminum, kitchen and household utensils are illustrated in Reymond & Gottlob's latest catalogue. When compared with the different varieties manufactured two years ago, the catalogue speaks well for the progress in the metal, and also for the enterprise of these merchants in carrying and thus creating a demand for such a variety of aluminum goods. The catalogue shows goods in all the forms ever made up in tin ware, and many articles that can be made advantageously in aluminum that are not produced in other metals. The catalogue as well gives some very instructive reading matter regarding the care of aluminum ware, and how the good qualities of the metal have been injured through the careless handling and extravagant claims of storekeepers. It requires very little knowledge of the metal to take care of aluminum ware properly, yet it has in many instances not even received fair treatment. In Reymond & Gottlob's new catalogue, the properties of the metal are clearly described, and its advantages forcibly presented. There are excellent cuts and descriptions of all the articles, while there are also directions for properly cleaning the goods. In addition to all the varieties of cooking ware, the catalogue illustrates two camping. cooking outfits both for field and cabin service. The field outfit, consisting of twelve pieces, is carried in two parts with a total weight of but six pounds.

Among the firm's new goods this fall is a handsome five o’clock teapot and standard. The pot is made of sheet aluminum, spun in one piece with no joint except at the spout, while the standard is of artistic wrought iron. With a tray of aluminum to match, the teaset makes a very fitting holiday present. The teapots are made in two different shapes. Another new line of the firm is an assortment of tea and coffee pots of from one to five pints. Good cast aluminum tea and coffee pots are now the most serviceable pots of this class on the market. In order to show their aluminum goods and novelties throughout the whole country Raymond & Gottlob have put three salesmen on the road who call at all of the principal towns and cities.

Besides their extensive line of kitchen and household ware Reymond & Gottlob carry a stock of goods of about everything made in aluminum. They are the leading aluminum wholesalers in America, and make a specialty of fitting out new stores. By their connections and interests in aluminum factories they are able to give factory prices to the retail trade, and all orders can be filled on the day of purchase.

The Pittsburgh Reduction Company on November 1 closed their New York store at 10 and 11 Havemeyer Building. Cortlandt and Church streets. The company have arranged that the firms of Patterson Bros, metal dealers, 27 Park row, and Reymond & Gottlob, who have gone into occupation of the former premises of the Pittsburgh Reduction Company in the Havemeyer Building, will each carry a retail stock of aluminum in the form of ingots, plates, bars, sheets, rods, wire and tubing, to supply the local demand for these materials in and around New York City. All large orders the Pittsburgh Reduction Company request to be sent to them at Pittsburgh, Pa. B. C. Bakewell, who has been connected with the Pittsburgh Reduction Company for the past five years at their works at New Kensington, Pa.., and at their Chicago and New York branches, remains as manager for Reymond & Gottlob. The last named firm will carry a very full stock of aluminum of all kinds at their new store, as well as an extensive line of aluminum household utensils and novelties. Reymond & Gottlob’s headquarters will continue to be, however, as heretofore, at 831 Broadway, New York.

NEW ALUMINUM CORPORATION

In the January number of The Metal Industry we mentioned the report of the combination of the aluminum goods manufacturers of the United States, but the various companies interested at that time would neither deny or affirm the report. Recently articles of incorporation have been filed in the State of New Jersey of the Aluminum Goods Manufacturing Company, with headquarters at Newark, N. J., to manufacture wares made of aluminum. The capital is $750,000, and the incorporators are Joseph Koenig, Two Rivers. Wis.; George Vits, Manitowoc, Wis.; Gustav A. Kruttschnitt, Newark, N. J. Officers: G. A. Kruttschnitt, president; Joseph Koenig and George Vits, vice-presidents, and James C. Coleman, secretary and treasurer. It is stated the combination includes the Manitowoc Aluminum Novelty Company, of Manitowoc. Wis.; the Aluminum Manufacturing Company, Two Rivers. Wis., and the New Jersey Aluminum Company, Newark, N. J. These companies are three of the largest aluminum goods manufacturers in the United States and are half the number of the concerns engaged in the manufacture of aluminum goods. The firms not in the corporation are the Illinois Pure Aluminum Company, Lemont, 111.; Buckeye Aluminum Company, Doylestown, Ohio, and the Aluminum Cooking Utensil Company, Pittsburg, Pa. The last concern is a subsidiary corporation of the Aluminum Company of America, of Pittsburg, Pa., producers of metallic aluminum in all forms.
