Kunstverlag J. Goldiner – Art Publisher J. Goldiner

According to the excellent website Güstrow for historical photos and postcards and a Wiki entry in German, this publishing company was originally started by Julius Goldiner (1852 – 1914) who began publishing postcards in about 1895. After his death, his wife, Auguste (Bock) Goldiner (1856 – 1941) and daughter Elisabeth Goldiner (1879 – 1945) continued the company under the name of Kunstverlag J. Goldiner, and made it one of the great German postcard publishers. Kunstverlag translates as “art publisher.” After Elisabeth died the company ran as a family business under Charlotte (Goldiner) Kröger, Erna (Kröger) Quiring and Lore Kröger until 1977.

We have one postcard at this time from this publisher. See the post entitled Gruss Aus Berlin.
