I have been looking through my boxes and so far have found:
Numbers 140 to 164 Landwehr infantry at rest
Numbers 165 to 178 Landwehr cavalry at rest
and numbers 393 to 399 Pioniers
and every single one engraved by Soellner. It seems highly likely that all of his Prussians were engraved by the same hand.

Merlino, the Nonn file will be waiting for you at the BFFS table.
See you there,
Ed

No 337 -a wounded Volunteer Jager-
has the engravers sign So at the base.

Hello, Oleg.
In the Nonn catalogue, numbers 1 to 42 are hussars standing, trotting or firing carbines. I'm afraid I don't have these, so I can't tell you the engraver. Numbers 229 to 250 are charging and sabring with a few casualties. One day I hope to put them into a diorama. These were all engraved by Soellner. I can't tell you either who engaged the excellent, action packed Landwehr infantry as their bases are embedded in my Plancenoit diorama. I do have other Nonn figures somewhere in my attic, but it's unbearably, possibly lethally hot up there at the moment. I'll report back when I have investigated.

Hi Ed,
thanks for the reply. Would you mind giving me numbers of hussar figures? Soellner as an engraver is more interesting to me than Rieger.
Thank you beforehand.

Hello, Oleg.
The catalogue says the figures were designed by Karl Heinrichs, but there is no mention of engravers. I looked into my box of hussars and found they were engraved by Soellner (sorry, I can't find the umlaut) but the Sigel-Bestimmungsbuch gives Rieger as Nonn's main engraver.

Sorry to disturb you,
but it could be, that your enthusiasm gets a halt:
The Nonn moulds went to HerBu Herwart Bunzel 3 years ago.

I never heard, that Mr Bunzel was offering these figures - but I may be wrong.

I have the ring binder (A5) sent to me with updates by Herr Nonn when I was fulfilling bulk orders for the Society.


Hi Ed, can you tell us who was the main engraver for Mr. Nonn?
Thanks

I have the ring binder (A5) sent to me with updates by Herr Nonn when I was fulfilling bulk orders for the Society. It consists of 66 pages, showing454 figures. I had promised it to Merlino, and will still send it to him, if he would like it. I was unable to scan it as my scanner is misbehaving. If Jerry's copy helps people, well done. If Merlino would still like the hard copy, I will send it to him with my compliments.

If you click on the upper menu under Vendor Catalogs you will see it there.  Nice selection of Prussian cavalry.

I have scanned a catalogue in and emailed it to Mark for inclusion in the vendor catalogues.
