Maker Waldor Products

Maker Details Waldor Products sells promotional products with advertising on them. Waldor Products has always been a family operation: the company was founded in 1946 by Walter and Dorothy Spiegel (thus the name "Waldor" which contains the first three letters of each of their names!). They had just married and Walter was only recently out of the military following his tour of duty in WWII. In 1969 they were joined by their son, Stephen, who had just finished college and military commitment and who is currently the President.

Summary Fair

Assessor Luke Frommelt

Notes The combs are dirty and scratched. The cardboard display is torn into several pieces. The colors are faded, and there are several stains. There are spaces for six more combs, and the cardboard is indented from where the clips had been, but these combs are missing.




Date FEB 24,2016

Notes Object was repaired with mending tissue so that cardboard was one piece instead of several.
