Eldorado Typhonite 175 6H

Brand: Joseph Dixon

Made in: USA

At first I understood the Eldorado to have gone through some changes over the years with regards to looks......even supposed the 175 model was just a morph of the original Eldorado......well here is an older Eldorado 175 with crucible I am going to have to reevaluate what I know about the Eldorado....looks like the Eldorado 175 is a different model then the Eldorado with no number.

About Joseph Dixon

Began as the "Joseph Dixon Crucible Company" (Joseph Dixon: 1799-1869) with its main manufacturing facility in Jersey City, New Jersey. Dixon was an inventor who received patents in 1850 for the use of graphite crucibles in pottery and steel manufacturing. He died in 1869. Dixon’s son-in-law, Orestes Cleveland, took over as president of the company in 1858. Cleveland served as both mayor of Jersey City as well as a short stint in the U.S. House of Representatives (1869-1871). In 1873 the company bought the American Graphite Company located in Ticonderoga, New York, and in 1913 began integrating the name into its brand as "Dixon Ticonderoga." In 2005, Dixon Ticonderoga was acquired by Italian-based FILA.
