What are the terms on the top of the left tube of each? And I assume both wear >>Engelbrecht Clever Nachfolger<< on the top of the right tube?

Friar Fred of Utah over @ GGCA gives the the following for Engelbert Clever Nachfolger in an older thread:

>>From what I can gather, the Nachfolger was a gent named Hommelsheim, a master gun maker, who, on New Year's Day of 1913 gave the business over to Kettner but operated it afterwards as a branch of Ed. Kettner. The addresses I have are not the same. <<

Not sure if this is gospel as I can see Kettner sourcing the talented mechanics in Liège, but just a >>Successor<< ??? Not sure.

Thanks Wolfgang for the reminder.

Many thanks for the effort. I am quite confident that Scholbert & Delheid(?) made both & were the source to the trade.

Karl Körmes in Leipzig hung out his gunmaking shingle in 1797 and a character by the name of Albrecht Roland took the reins of the concern in 1918 or @ the end of WWI and was at the helm of it to 1942 or thereabouts?
