PV PESTALOZZI VERLAG VERKEHRSZEICHEN-QUARTET

A children’s picture books factory called  G. Löwensohn (the predecessor of Pestalozzi Verlag) was established on 1 October 1856 by Gerson Löwensohn in Fürth, Germany. They mainly produced paper cut models, cards, painting and picture books. At the end of the 1920’s they acquired a small printing company, called Pestalozzi. During the time of National Socialism, the Jewish owners were forced to sell the company in 1937 to May AG (KAMAG) in Dresden. The company was converted into a limited company and the name was changed into (the non-Jewish sounding) Pestalozzi Verlag.
In the 1950s and 1960s they became one of the leading children's book publishers. The Pestalozzi Verlag as such does not exist anymore as it became part of several mergers.

This is a Verkehrszeichen-Quartett card game produced in Germany around 1950 by PV PESTALOZZI VERLAG. These types of card games came in many forms and designs. The object of the game was each player would eventually collect the cards to create several 4 card matching sets. At the end of the game, the player who had the most 4 card sets won. In the meantime, it also introduced the German children to the different types of road signs and their meaning.

There was even a HEBMÜLLER VW Type 14A Cabriolet graphics on one of the playing cards. Seldom Found !
