Urban Jürgensen models
* According to Wikipedia first founded in 1740 by Jürgen Jürgensen and Isaac Larpent as Larpent & Jürgensen. But other sources think it was 1773. Like the brand itself. Then Jürgensen’s son Urban took over the company and changed the name in 1814, probably to Urban Jürgensen.
