Sorry Gareth, I thought it looked Scandi too, but I just couldn't find the right combination of letters/RK/numbers, and M Fust??  

Could be that I've missed it and it's there somewhere....sorry.   :?  :(

Based on things I saw in Prague, it was clear to me that the Czech folk like accuracy in their art.

I think the "Bohemian" / Czech bull, linked by Taylog1, is "typical" as the bull seems to have all its correct apendages.

Gareth's bull seems to be missing a part  :!:  And on that basis alone I would say Gareth's is unlikely to be Czech.

I wondered if it could read Fiest rather than Fust? I Googled but haven't found anything helpful at all. It looks like a very nice piece though.

Hi all


Many thanks for checking this out...as someone has taken the trouble to sign it I am more hopeful at some stage of determining the maker.

I gave him the once over and as you rightly pointed out he is safe to put out into the field. :wink:
