Delta Gnom – a historical Austrian manufacturer

March 7th, 2015 would like to introduce one more stamp by Austrian Post dedicated its historical manufacturer – Delta Gnom. The item depicts the bike produced by this manufacturer. The stamp has been already designed and is to be released on the 7th of March.

Made in Vienna from the nineteen-twenties by the Engler, Wolmersdorfer Company, the Delta Gnom was one of a number of smaller machines competing for the market, ceasing production in the ‘thirties.

Post-war, the firm resumed two-wheeler manufacturing, in competition with Puch and others, for the Austrian market. Well-built, reliable but always-sold in small numbers, the Delta Gnom survived until 1955, making survivors rather rare.
