This July 4, 1949 article from Life looks at the work of inventor Peter Schlumbohm, best known for his Chemex coffee maker and kettle.
I've been using the coffee maker for about 15 years and the water kettle for almost as long. They're very simple to use (using the Chemex filters does make a difference) and look great alongside Pyrex Flameware.
