Friedrich Staudt

Balloonist, ventriloquist and inventor.

Friedrich Staudt (1809-1876) was a remarkable adventurer who was one of the first Dutch balloonists to travel through the Netherlands and Germany to show off his impressive hot air balloon. In addition, Friedrich had acquired a patent with his invention: a special stamping ink, which he sold from his factory in The Netherlands. All stamps were engraved by hand.
