Nice to see their hand signed/engraved

Maybe the person who actually made them was the BW engraved part (reference another previous posting on this site, hence why I asked about these markings)

But did the maker sign or the designer do it as a type of quality control ?

Another point is on larger pieces (not mine) are the full signature's actually the designers  ?

Nice to clarify these points !

They would have been signed by the person whose job it was to do the signing, not the designer, one of those internet myths...

The BW might (not sure about this) be the initials of the engraver and the number afterwards denote the particular engraved picture.
