He was always a serious student of historic textiles. Eventually his collection expanded from a box in his office to fill his home in St Gall. In 1904 he gave a substantial donation to the Industrie und Gewerbe Museum in St Gall. After his death in 1922, a major part of his collection was auctioned in Zürich. The remainder passed to his sons. The grandsons of Leopold Iklé sold 254 lots in these rooms on 7 November 1989. The following lots are consigned by further members of the Iklé family.
