Oldenkott Switzerland : Wappen-Album Städte der Schweiz


Album information :

  • Issued by : Herms. Oldenkott en Zoonen, Amsterdam
  • Date of issue : 1905-1910  ?
  • Number of stamps/cards : 120 in one album

For information on the company see here.


This is the only known non Dutch heraldic Oldenkott album. Issued in Amsterdam but the album is in German. There is no additional text in the album. The images are in the same style as in the Dutch albums, but on thin paper, whereas the Dutch albums are of thick paper. There is no texts on the back as for the Dutch albums.

I have never seen a complete version and I have no idea about the designer/author. Any information is welcome !
