Because of the lack of published trowel and masonry tool histories, the information here is based on other sources that may be less reliable and certainly are incomplete. These include eBay and tools that I purchase myself that are the starting points for my research. I will write what I know as I learn it. If what you read here interests you, please check back often and look for revisions and corrections. Scanned catalogs are either mine or by Rose Antique Tools and used with permission, and are on Google Docs as pdf files. A few are links to other websites. Your photos and information are welcome.

Lohmann & Co. German Export Trowels

Lohmann & Co. logo
Lohmann & Co. was a tool manufacturer and exporter in Bremen, Germany. Lohmann was founded about 1891, and their logo was a double bullock (ox). The pages below are from an undated Lohmann catalog from the interwar period. The complete 230-page catalog shows that Lohmann was able to make all types of hand tools, and to reproduce popular tools from countries to which they were exporting, including Britain and the United States.
