Nice Wilhelm Hobacher ISA and your's is the small block hinge set up. There is also a sheet metal hinge example.
The Hobacher variant is part of the Vienna Design family of ISA's and shares it's obverse concept with other makers from the Vienna area.
Caution must be taken with the Hobacher examples as almost exacting fakes are coming out of the Dortmond area.
This is in addition to the W.H. marked blockhead fakes.
Best Regards, fischer
looks very nice.
An attractive example, well done! And Thanks to our friend Fischer, your expertise is a blessing to the Forum!
A nice addition Greg!
Here is my example with the sheet metal hinge that fischer spoke about.
