My grandfather , Christian Philip Reitz was employed by Friz, Bros in Germany and then was was friend of Leonhardts' and was asked to come to the US in the late 20's. he was a flavor chemist, the developed the flavor for Fruit Stripe gums in his lab. My father Ralph, was give the middle name Leonhardt for the admiration he had for his friend. I have many pictures of the celebrations the company had over the years. as a little girl, I remember Opa, coming home from the city to Long Island everday on the 6 pm train, the whistle would blow and I knew to walk to the corner and meet him for the walk home.

I have just acquired for resale a sterling silver letter opener, made by George W. Shiebler of NYC for the commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the company of Fritzsche Brothers, dated 1896. It is quite ornate, a fascinating piece of the company's early history for anyone interested. Pictures are available upon request.

I just found this today at a thrift store. It's pretty cool! It's a background music film soundtrack for, I guess a trade film called "Essential Oils of the Mediterranean"
(a first edition limited to 1000 copies). A Fritzsche Brothers, Inc. Production. Photographed and Edited by Ernest Guenther, Ph, D, Narrated by Robert Hite. It doesn't list who's doing the music, but I really think it's interesting. https://www.discogs.com/Unknown-Artist-Essential-Oils-Of-The-Mediterranean/release/3334968

Mr. Ernest Guenther was my great great uncle. I have always been fascinated by his travels around the world. One of my most prized possessions are his binoculars which went on his travels with him. I am trying to learn more about him and would love to hear from anyone if they have any photos or videos from his safaris.

I worked at the Fritzsche Dodge & Olcott Clifton, NJ facility from 1973 thru the mid 1990s. Maybe I could help identify the person in your photo.

Regarding your inquiry about the picture of the lab at 3rd Street in Clifton I may be able to help identify the individual.

Back in the early 1970’s I received a small sample bottle of what I was told was a sample of a new perfume. I absolutely loved the smell and have kept the bottle all of these years...and yes, you can still smell this wonderful fragrance. I was curious to find out something about this bottle that has the name FRITZSCHE-D&O so I decided to google it and am surprised to find this article. I truly still love this fragrance and would buy some today if I could...how wonderful

In the 1880's, Fritzsche bragged that it had installed rope and pulley elevators in its plant and had begun to employ women.
