Richard Klein (German, 1890-1967). King Ludwig III of Bavaria ("Bayernthaler") with color illustrations of Bavaria in the First World War and Presentation Box, 1916. Silvered bronze, chromolithographs, and carboard

This rather interesting commemorative accordion is made up of individual miniature prints linked together by a ribbon of backing material. The publication was given as part of a gift of coins by Dr. Andrew Laurie Stangel to the Chazen Museum of Art, Madison, Wisconsin. On the right end of the publication is a case for the folded accordion, and separately there is a cardboard box for storage. Approximately 6ft long, and 2" tall.

  1. Does anyone know how many of these were made? What the value may be?
