KOMNICK / GERMANY ( 1907 - 1927 )

 Karl Franz KOMNICK started his car production in 1907. The factory was locted in Elbing / East Prussia, so they sold their cars also to Russia, Poland and other eastern countries. The first cars had the radiator behind the engine. The KOMNICK was famous for his durability. But it was never a  mass - producer, so they had to close in 1927.  To my knowledge no car survived WW1 and WW2, so the emblem is also very, very rare.

  1. Karl Franz Komnick was my great great (great?)(maybe another great I’m not too sure) grandfather. One day I plan to maybe restart this car company if I have the chance :) I’ll base some of the designs off of the early car models maybe
