    Hello All,

    Nick replied with the following message; "The engraving you shown is an early Bavaria Suhl…serial number is most likely from somewhere between 1980 and 1982". He could not give me the engravers name or the name of the scene. I would have liked a more complete description, but it is what he gave me. Does anyone know of a resource to identify scenes and engravers? Let me know.

    Regards,

    Johnnie

    JYS,
    Usually in Germany, even "custom" engraving is not signed unless a signature is requested by the customer. Very rarely you may find an ID hidden within the engraving, that only the engraver himself/herself knows. Some engravers work is distinctive enough that others familiar with it can ID it, animals as an example. This is not likely possible from photos, especially "thumb nails". There are engravers that view this site and I believe they would have IDed the engraver for you already, if they could have.
