Biographical/Historical Note

Successors to Janentzky & Weber Manufacturers & Importers, F. Weber & Company, Inc. was established in 1853 and incorporated in 1920. The company manufactured artists supplies, including painting and drawing supplies, mathematical instruments, materials for gilders, sign and coach-painters, china decorators, engineers, lithographers, etchers and engravers, as well as materials for pyrography or wood burning, and wax and paper flowers. Their main office was located at 1125 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, and branch houses existed at 709 Locust St., St.Louis, Missouri, and 5 North Charles Street, Baltimore, Maryland.
Frederick Weber was a chemist, author, lecturer and painter.

Scope and Content of Collection

The archive of F. Weber & Company, Inc. contains printed catalogues and brochures, ledgers with financial and technical information (including paint formulas), correspondence and other business papers, manuscripts of lectures and photographs from trade fairs. The material dates from 1865-1971, with the bulk of the material from the first 3 decades of the 20th-century.
Paint formula books, ca. 1865-1967, undated (ca. 30), are handwritten ledgers documenting most aspects of F. Weber & Company's manufacture of paint, including special orders and customers. Many of the ledgers include inserted paint samples. All of the ledgers cover a span of years; some as many as 20 years. All of the ledgers are fragile.
Sample books, 1925-1951, (ca. 30 items) include printed books, brochures and cards which provide samples of artists' materials for sale by Weber. These include samples of canvas, various types of paints, inks, papers and colored pencils.
Business papers (2.5 lin. ft.) 1870-1973, n.d., include 4 small wage and expense account books from the 1870s; a ledger of Weber Co. stock on hand for 1897; 3 stock certificate books, 1921-1963; blueprints, drawing and specifications for an F. Weber manufacturing building, 1917; and by-laws and incorporation papers, 1920-1921. The F. Weber & Company's participation in trade fairs and expositions (1922-1941, n.d.) is documented with some correspondence, printed material and ca. 15 photographs. There are also ca. 15 lectures (and announcements for lectures) by F. Weber, ca. 1922-35, in mss. and printed form, on the technical aspects of artists materials, especially paints. A scrapbook contains clippings, brochures and flyers about his lectures.
Other companies' trade catalogs and price lists (ca. 40 items) were collected by the F. Weber & Company in the course of doing business, and date from 1870-1951.
Monographs from the collection have been accessioned to the Reseach Library's general collection.
