Lapp & Flershem

Lapp & Flershem was a Chicago-based jobber in the latter part of the 19th century, starting in 1876, lasting into the 1920s and possibly beyond. Their catalogs were labeled only as the "Busiest House In America" (see: Explanatory Letter with the 1897 catalog) for marketing reasons.

The Lapp & Flershem Twentieth Annual Illustrated Catalogue - 1896

The watch portion of the 1896 catalog is not posted here, since it seems to be very similar to that of the 1897 catalog (which has already been posted). However, the full 1896 catalog is
available online. Should significant differences be uncovered, selected pages may be posted in the future.
