Hiya,
Libochovice is the factory, Karel Zentner the designer. Pattern number 1518 and were still in production in the late 1950's (info courtesy of the CD database which comes with Marcus Newhall's book).

If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.
