Kupferdruck v. J.B. Obernetter Munchen.
 
J.B. Obernetter (1840-87) was a Bavarian photochemist who, according to Josef Maria Eder (1945 "History of Photography" Columbia University Press, p.536) "applied his inventive genius to numerous branches of photographic reproduction technique, was not only the first to manufacture collodio-chloride papers on a commercial scale but also the first to use it in printing large editions for the illustration of German photographic technical journals." His son, Emil Obernetter, of Munich, who took control of his father's firm after his death, had been manufacturing gelatino-chloride paper on a large scale from 1884 and "thereby laid the foundation for the later commercial production of these papers in England and France." (ibid. p.536). As evidenced by this plate, the firm was also still producting copper-plate photogravures in 1894.
