Grabschmuck. Katalog No.11 [and] Katalog No.17.

Wurtemburg Ernst Strassacker: ca. 1930 & 1936.

A wonderful pair of trade catalogs of memorial figures and decorations for monuments and gravestones, issued by a German bronze foundry. Each features a wide array of figures, urns, vases, crosses, plaques, gates, pediments and other cast decorative elements, many with a distinctly Art Deco or Moderne feeling. The vast majority of the iconography is Christian, but each catalog does feature a dozen or so Jewish items, and the 1936 catalog features a selection of Hebrew letters in the fonts section. There are also brass symbols for various trades, and a selection of Masonic emblems. A very interesting pair of catalogs.

2 catalogs. Softcover. 9"x11.5", 81 pages and 120 pages filled with b/w illustrations covers a bit sunned around the edge several cover creases some soil a few pages of Catalog 11 with moderate soil.
