KOMNICK / GERMANY

KOMNICK radiator emblem

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.
