That's beautiful.  :mrgreen: Fritsche died in 1924 and was still working until then, so that cuts 11 years off.

Hi Thomas
 
I think maybe at the bottom end of the range close to 1906. What a beautiful piece I'm  :mrgreen:!

Lots of sunshine again today :sun:

to be honest - it was a dealer who knew that i collect antique silver claret jugs and he asked if i know an engraver named W. Fritsche - i got a little excited and said yes - a bohemian who worked in england etc etc .. - and in the end i bought it for 250 BP .. i think that is an win - win situation because he bought it for 20 BP .

to answer your question : the market is 4 times a year in graz the capital of styria with about 400 exhibitors - 380 have rubbish and 20 are expensive !

and here in austria the dealers are far away from being so informed like the english dealers and collector because the don`t do any teamwork - they are all one-man- shows and in england - i often see that - if a dealer has an unidentified item - within a a few minutes other dealers are around him and everybody is saying what it is or what it could be !

Th best story i heard about this topic was a discussion about an nice antique painted glass goblet - they all looked at it and bespoke every details of the glass till someone said : now i know : The painting is old the glass is new !! :24:

You're right we love to stand around talking about items. It takes me hours to get round my local antiques fair (held over three days) because I have to chat to all the dealers I know. Sharing what you buy greatly increases the fun of the hunt  ;D

I think that was a very good price for such a nice piece, in a good English auction house I'm sure it would have been more if properly catalogued.
