ORIGINAL CATALOG – AUGUST LÜNEBURG

SKU: 13-811

$195.00

This is a catalog from the August Lüneberg firm, which had offices in Kiel and Flensburg during the Imperial German Period. They sold naval officers’ daggers, portépées, etc. The catalog measures 9 1/4″ x 12 1/4″ and has a total of ten pages. The firm’s specialty was officers’ daggers. Several pages showcase their various models. The blades exhibit various levels of engraving. Even Damascus blades are listed. I see full daggers ranging from 30 to 70 Marks for a dagger with a Damascus blade. Farther along are such things as officers’ belts, belts with hangers, and portépées. [My mouth really watered when I saw a Konteradmiral’s epaulettes for 70.50 marks! His daily-use uniform’s shoulder boards cost 13.75 marks]. Lüneberg’s also sold miniatures of decorations that could be attached to tie chains. The back page’s reverse features pistols from such firms as Browning, Mauser, etc.
Although complete, the catalog is NOT in perfect condition. Some foxing affects its pages. It also has a cut where a portion of the paper is missing on several pages.
