Why antique Sandwich?
« on: August 10, 2008, 09:39:35 PM »

I don't see why the seller chose antique Sandwich for this item, rather than some other erroneous attribution. (Unless perhaps they were eating an antique sandwich at the time...  :)

Hi Cathy

I am fairly sure it is modern, and from the Czech Republic.  If it is older, then I think it is from whatever the Czech republic was called at the time it was made! (If all else fails, go for "Bohemia".... ;))
