Web Description: 
This business plaque once hung outside the Blaschkas’ studio in Dresden, Germany. Both Leopold and his son produced models, but to avoid paying additional income taxes, they kept the firm in Leopold’s name. As a result, advertisements, catalogs, and references usually list only Leopold as the maker.
