    Gents

    Dont know about you guys but I am on a constant quest to find info on unknown makers of buckles I have owned. I do a lot of searching looking at old German toy makers, metal hardware manufacturers. I have just come across this site and found:

    Gebrüder Deyhle
    Schwäbisch Gmund
    founded 1820

    German Hallmarks II - Encyclopedia of Silver Marks, Hallmarks & Maker's Marks

    Seems at some point they were a silver smith. If people are not aware during the war years metal manufacturers had to adapt to the times so from making commercial pots and pans they made canteens, or went from making knives to bayonets etc. So again always worth searching these old companies for their logos

    Maybe start with German jewellery makers, do a search German jewellery makers 1890-1920 or something like that, you may get lucky
