LUDWIG HOHLWEIN (1874-1949) OBERURSELER UMLAUFMOTOR / MOTORENFABRIK OBERURSEL. Circa 1915. 35 1/4x27 1/2 inches, 89 1/2x70 cm. Kornsand & Co., Frankfurt. Condition B+ / B: chipping along sharp vertical and horizontal folds; minor tears and losses at edges; minor foxing in margins and image. Printed on thick paper. This poster and the previous lot have traditionally been dated to circa 1914. A more exact date would be 1915, as it was this year when the Fokker Eindecker was developed and entered into military service. The planes were so successful that Anthony Fokker himself bought the factory in 1916 to ensure a steady and continuous production of the engines for his aircraft. Here, two servicemen are examining highlights of the engine's construction. Hohlwein / Stuttgart 160, Hillier 37.
