A brief history of Doll & Co. of Nüremburg, Germany:
Doll & Co. was founded in 1898 in Nüremburg, Germany by tinsmith Peter Doll & John Sondheim with Max Bein (Sondheims nephew) joining as a third partner just before WWI. Doll & Co. specialized in steam toys and steam engines. The company made and sold model steam engines, steam toys and steam accessories such as tractors, cars, trains, saw mills, fountains and Ferris Wheels. Their toys were widely distributed throughout the UK, Europe, and the United States. The company exported a majority of their wares with most of it going to England and the United States.
Around 1935, Doll & Co. was purchased by Fleischmann due to the Aryanization laws in place in Germany. Fleischmann continued to use the Doll& Co. name for a while and the after the war, Fleischmann offered to return the company back to the original owners, but they declined, accepting a buyout of their shares instead.
