    It looks to be an original Arno Wallpach,
    Shame about the catch.

    These are faked to a very high degree, and the scaling/wave pattern on the rear that may be due to the material being to hot or cold when struck was a bit of a concern for me. But close inspection of the tool mark on the hinge can often act like a "fingerprint" to aid verification. Here's yours with a comparison of two known originals, it looks good to me from here.
