The London company Murrle, Bennet & Co. had a close connection to the company of Theodor Fahrner: Ernst Mürrle, born in Pforzheim, was a friend of Theodor Fahrner. He visited Pforzheim regularly up to six times a year to review and order the new products of Pforzheim manufacturers for the London store of Murrle, Bennet & Co. in Charterhouse Street. Designs by Patriz Huber and Max J. Gradl for Theodor Fahrner became very popular.
The button is possibly a design by Max Gradl.
