Keuffel & Esser Company Building
Financial District, Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States
The 8-story Keuffel & Esser Co. Building was constructed in 1892-93 to the design of De Lemos & Cordes as the general offices and salesrooms for the firm that imported and manufactured drawing materials, drafting tools, and mathematical and surveying equipment. The richly-detailed Renaissance Revival style primary facade on Fulton Street has a tripartite division: a 2-story, arched cast-iron storefront that bears the firm’s name and representations of its products; and buff brick- and terra¬ cotta-clad upper stories, with the midsection having a recessed monumental round-arched window capped by a foliated sculptural relief of a knight’s helmet, shield, and winged orb, and the upper section featuring a 2-story angled metal window bay and culminating in a decorative cornice and balustrade. There is a secondary articulated facade on Ann Street.
Theodore W. E. De Lemos & August W. Cordes, born and educated in Germany, established their firm in 1884 and were active within New York’s German-American community, becoming noted for commercial structures and large department stores. The Keuffel & Esser Co., the first American company solely devoted to drawing and drafting materials, was founded in 1867 on Nassau Street by two other German emigres, Wilhelm J. D. Keuffel and Herman Esser. Early on, the firm was successful and continually expanded, tentatively starting manufacture in 1870, opening a retail store in 1872, moving to 127 Fulton Street in 1878, and constructing a factory in Hoboken, N.J., in 1880-81. K&E introduced imported slide rules in 1880, began their first American manufacture in 1891, and became the nation’s foremost producer. Herman Esser was bought out in 1902, and the firm remained privately owned and managed by the Keuffel family until 1965.
K&E played a nationally significant role in the technological development of the United States, both as a leading manufacturer of drafting equipment, surveying instruments, and related products, and as the developer of continually advanced systems, until the 1980s. This building, which remained in use by K&E for nearly seven decades, is one of the best- preserved and distinguished of the smaller late-19th-century office buildings in the area of lower Manhattan between the financial district and City Hall.
DESCRIPTION AND ANALYSIS
Keuffel & Esser Co.
The Keuffel & Esser Co. was founded in 1867 at 79 Nassau Street by two German emigres, Wilhelm Johann Diedrich Keuffel and Herman Esser, as importers and jobbers of European drawing and drafting materials. Keuffel (1838-1908), born in Walbeck, Germany, was employed in the hardware business in Germany and in Birmingham, England, prior to his immigration to Hoboken, N.J., in 1866. The next year, he joined with Herman Esser (18451908), who was originally from Wuppertal-Elberfeld. By 1869, Keuffel & Esser [hereafter K&E] advertised “DRAWING MATERIALS. Drawing Paper, Tracing Cloth, Swiss Instruments, Colors, Rubber Triangles, etc., etc., especially for Architects and Engineers, at wholesale and retail.” The singular role of this firm was indicated by the National Cyclopaedia of American Biography:
Drafting was at that time in its infancy in the United States, and Mr. Keuffel soon appreciated itsimportance in relation to the phenomenal development of American manufacturing and engineeringenterprise. To supply all the requirements, in office and field, of the surveyor, engineer, architect anddraftsman and make a specialty of this business was the purpose of the new firm, and Mr. Keuffel canwell be called the pioneer in this line, because up to 1867 drafting supplies had not been carriedexclusively by any house in this country.
Early on, the firm was successful and continually expanded, moving locations several times. K&E tentatively started manufacture and published its first instruments catalogue in 1870; opened its first retail store with a showroom in Manhattan in 1872; transferred its manufacturing to Hoboken, N.J., in 1875; moved its headquarters to 127 Fulton Street in 1878; and constructed a new factory building in Hoboken in 1880-81 (which was expanded in 1884, 1892, and 1900). The firm was incorporated in 1889, with Keuffel serving as president until his death. K&E, which had introduced imported slide rules in 1880, began their first American manufacture in 1891. The company became strongly associated with the product as the nation’s foremost manufacturer, credited with popularizing slide rules in the United States. In 1892-93, K&E constructed a new building at 127 Fulton Street to serve as its retail salesrooms and general offices.
K&E played a nationally significant role in the technological development of the United States. K&E products, which included measuring tapes and compasses, were used in countless construction and eng
Chair Rail Moldings
A cost effective way to make a room go from blah to WOW! is to install chair rail molding. Chair rail moldings are typically installed in kitchens, dining rooms, and hallways but are also used in family rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms. Because they add a linear break to the wall, color, material, texture, etc. below the rail can be different than above adding interest to the decor. The best part, anyone with a few basic tools and a little upfront knowledge can handle the installation.
We produce chair rail moldings for architects, contractors, installers and homeowners from any wood species as well as MDF (medium density fiberboard), plastic, flexible trim and foam in many styles or size up to 12". We also produce the backers which are used in some styles. Popular wood choices for staining are mahogany, maple, red oak, cherry and pine and for painting are poplar, pine, MDF and finger-joint pine.

What Size Should my Chair Rail Be?
You will need to consider the door casing thickness and ceiling height when deciding on the size of chair rail. The chairrail should be thinner than the casing, 1/8" difference is ideal, if it will butt into the edge. A thicker chair rail can be used by using a backer first and adding a more decorative profile to the backer with returns where the chair meets the casing. The overall width of the chair should be relative to the casing and baseboard. 6" chair rail might look out of place along side 2-1/4" casing or above 3-1/4" base, and would be better proportioned with 4-1/2" casing and 8" base.
How High Should I Install my Chair Rail?
The rule of thumb for height is 1/3 of the total height of the wall. For 8' ceilings this is 32". Also consider whether the chair will butt into window casing or be installed below the window. Adjusting the height by a few inches may mean fewer cuts or a cleaner look. Also, for dining rooms, the chair rail can protect your walls from the back of the chairs, measure where your chairs would contact the walls and consider installing the molding at this height.
How Much Chair Rail Molding Will I Need?
Use a tape measure and record the length of each wall for which base will be applied. Add the lengths together and add at least 10% for cutting waste.
