maiersWhile I still don’t know if the company of Chas. Maiers & Sons made the carving gouges that bear the imprint “C. MAIERS”, how long the company existed, or why the company is not represented in compilations of New Jersey tool manufacturers, I recently came across this envelope bearing a printed Chas. Maiers & Sons return address. The company’s address was 431 Badger Ave. Newark, New Jersey and the letter is postmarked September 16, 1914 – 100 years, two months and two days ago.
