A brief history of Greppert & Kelch of Brandenberg, Germany:

In 1919 Greppert and Kelch founded Greppert & Kelch (G&K) in Wredowstrasse in Brandenburg, Germany. The mid-1920s appears to have been the height of their popularity when G & K took over Metz & Duncker” founded in 1892 and the firm “Tellus Works” founded in 1910. In addition to the logo “G & K ” more and more toys became the brand ” Gundka ” and “Gundka Werke” which was derived from the name of the founders Greppert and Kelch. In 1931, parts of Oro-Werke were taken over to add to the companies list of quality toy companies they absorbed. The company specialized in small lithographed tin mechanical toys.
