 This B. Kriegsfeld & Co, cigarette tin (hand made) is in very tidy condition cica:1900. This company founded in 1892, were based at Lower Mosely St, Manchester and at 134, Aldersgate St, London. They claimed to manufacture over 2000 different brands although this is questionable. During the first World War they changed their German name to "Mal-Kah" and "Anglo-Colonial" for obvious reasons. They had some very colourful tins such as "Apple Blossom"-"Ivy-"La Poupee" and "Sweepstake" etc etc. It would be nice to see some of this firms tins/advertising etc etc. They were eventually taken over by Godfrey Phillips.

 Hi Bacco, not much Kreigsfield stuff to be seen for sale these days. My sole item is this flat 10 Apple Blossom. Had a very poor Ivy which "flew" off my table at Dunstable some years ago, how I wish I'd kept it! Cheers, Cabs

 Hi Cabs,

Over 170 hits and you are the only one to feedback. Makes me wonder why I bother!!!

Anyway, like your "Apple Blossom" tin one of which I was offered recently but was to badly pitted. Items from this company are quite rare but I'm certain some pieces are out there.

Thanks for taking time to feedback.

Bacco,
I am greatly indebted to you.

Your posts here have been thoroughly extensive for a sustained amount of time,
sharing obscure rarities and always posting a good bit of concrete textual information as well.

I very much appreciate your efforts and applaud your intense enthusiasm,
and you have my deep heartfelt thanks for continuing to present these things.

I owe you not only a debt of gratitude,
but for much of the actual credit for creating the images of these old and scarce tobacco items.

This website and forum has been a tremendous resource for me, better than any library, and has greatly enhanced my understanding & grasp of the peerless unrivaled British Tobacco industry.

I've used many images sourced from here,
and as an ethical concern I would like to start adding footnotes to my postings on the pipesmoker forum with image credits,
if you'd like your real name used for acknowledgement for photographic sources,
please contact me via
troylloyd@gmail.com

And that goes for anyone else here who is actively posting tobacciana imagery,
otherwise I will likely use forum nicknames to indicate your help in building the image archive.

Thank you Bacco for all that you do.

And thank you to everyone else here too for upkeeping and enriching this lively venue,
I would be very much the poorer without it.

Here are a few of my latest posts over on the pipesmoker forum,
and do note how many of the images were sourced from this lovely place right here.

 Thanks ossie,-kreemy_nut and philofumo for those kind words. My interest which is obvious by my posts, is to delve into the obscure companies and brands in the hope that feedback will provide new info:-I was hoping to see a picture of the "Ivy" and "La Poupee tins to add to my catalogue, as I've never seen them before. But thanks anyway for your feedback.

Bacco, your posts are well appreciated.

I'm pretty sure there have been a few examples of the Ivy tin on here in the past.

This one is the least scatchy pic I've got. Not my tin.

The only Kriegsfeld I've got is a scratchy Sweepstake which I've shown before.
