Fürst Stolberg Hütte / Germany

I´m sure you have never heard of a car manufacturer called " FÜRST STOLBERG HÜTTE " located in Ilsenburg / Germany.
Neither did I before I found this incredible radiator emblem. You can read  "Ilse" on it, a German prename of a women ( a little bit out of time ) . Also it is  the first word of the name of the town "Ilsenburg" where the factory was located.
In a German book  - published in 1975 -   you can read that it is not sure if they realized a regular car production. But it is sure that they printed brochures and that there was a real radiator emblem ( may be from a prototype ?).
