J.N. Menhard was a 19th century Austrian artisan, famous for his meerschaum pipes (some with precious stones) and other objects, which he carves in meerschaum and amber. He won the "Medal of Merit" at the Vienna World Fair in 1873. The Austrian Tobacco Museum has some of his pieces on display, signed: J.N. Menhard Wien
