    Omdat je Frowo DDR erop heeft staan, zou het ergens na 1949 zijn. Misschien is het later in de jaren 50/60 al gemaakt. Je moet kijken of de tankdop 'gewoon' is of het Frowo Flower-logo erop heeft.
    Because your Frowo has GDR on it, it would have been sometime after 1949. It might have been made even later on towards the 50's-60's. You need to see if the fuel cap is 'plain' or has the Frowo Flower Logo on it.

    this Frowo 420 is made in the mid 1960´s. I have exactly the same that came with the price tag on the bottom of the lamp. The price was shown in MDN, which is "Mark der Deutschen Notenbank ". This money was typical for the GDR between 1. August 1964 to 31. Dezember 1967.
