A Landsknecht was a feudal serf used for military purposes by his master. These “soldiers” were often traded between landowners and were, in a sense, the equivalent of modern mercenaries, with the important difference that they were not free to choose their employer.

G.M.T. & Bro. (Gustav M. Thurnauer & Brothers) was a New York importer operating between 1883 and circa 1914.

This model number exists with several different central Landsknecht images.

Price Range: $175-$250
