Default Wolf & Klar Catalog: Holster Pages

A few weeks back I posted a thread on a holster I believed was Wolf & Klar. As a result of that post a kind forum member connected be with a scarce, original Wolf & Klar catalog #16 probably dated to the 1927-31 era. These were distributor's catalogs so were mailed to retailers, not consumers. Mine was mailed to Berley-Kittrell, Columbia, South Carolina. The holster I had previously posted was their top of the line "Fancy Mexican".

Randy, you've done us all a great service by posting these pages from your W&K catalog. There is no better information available than original catalogs. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to post this.
Now, which one of you leather hounds is going to be the first to find a W&K marked Brill holster ?
Regards,
turnerriver

i'll post some more out of this catalog later. It is most interesting in that W&K had their own names for both the 2nd and 3rd models of 44's.

Bruce, that is great! Did you previously know it was Wolf & Klar? I guess I'd better start digging through my holster bin, too.
