A brief history of Fleischmann Brothers or Gebrüder Fleischmann Nürnberg of Nuremberg, Germany
Fleischmann is a German manufacturer of model railway products. Fleischmann was founded in Nuremberg, Germany in 1887 by Jean Fleischmann as an engraver and maker of handicrafts and paper weights. In 1898, the company began to make tin toys, such as ships, airplanes and magnetic maritime toys including swimming and walking animals and water fountains, under the name of Fleischmann Brothers or Gebrüder Fleischmann Nürnberg. Many of the early products can be found marked with the “GFN” markings. In the 1920’s and 1930’s, Fleischmann was best known for its clockwork and live steam mechanism tinplate boats and automotive replicas. In August 1932, Fleischmann bought up the model boat machinery and tooling from Bing when they ceased production. In 1939, Fleischmann took over Doll et Cie and began making the toy trains for which they are renowned today.
