    Interesting Pammy! Could it be a Juncker perhaps? There are indicators to suggest it is......
    Hopefully someone might be able to say for certain.......?

    Also known as a 'Lazy 2'.........

    I can make out the '800' stamp on the frame and I think I can just see something to the left of the suspension loop which might be a '2' lying on its back.

    The larger picture shows the typical Juncker 'basket weave' pattern on the inner corner..n'est pas ?

    Yes, I think I can just make it out on the bottom left inner corner. You can also see the 'X's on the outer corners.

    Definately looking like a Juncker, the Ose is the familiar Juncker one and the beading finish on the tip of the right 6 o clock arm looks good as does the cross hatching finish on the inner corners.

    The 800 is off set to the right suggesting a Lazy 2 offset to the left.

    Better and closer photos would be good

    Where it was dug will be very interesting !!
