'G' under a hand , now Glander Ornamental Iron Works, 1580, Cold Springs Road, Saukville, glanderWisconsin 53080, special sheet metal works.  The firm was formed by Erhard Glander in 1932 originally in West Allis, Milwaukee after arrival from Germany as a coppersmith during the 1920s.  He  specialised in copper and brass artworks.   His son, Erhard the younger, worked side by side with him and took over the firm which continues today under the ownership of Erhard the second’s children, Michael, Paul, and Lisa. In the 70’s the business changed its production to large scale industrial metal work and still does specials.
