From a site I found online . . .

"

Bros Mehner - Decorator Marks

Jílovice, Czech Republic (Eulau, Bohemia, Austria)

Brothers Mehner (Gebrüder Mehner), existed around 1930."

I'd still like to see to a pix of the item -- a little disappointing just to see the mark and sometimes we can date stuff a little more accurately.

Well, that site does say they existed around 1930, but you are right that it would be good to see the whole piece.

you can easily limit the era from 1918 to 1939.

sometimes it helps to go back to the German roots. Jílové was Eulau, Eule means owl and the city crest shows an ...

it was near the railway line "k.k.privilegierte Dux-Bodenbacher Eisenbahn". so you might look at some Royal Dux that was painted in Eulau.

Thanks, Goolgol -- I would've estimated it at c. 1925 with those stencilled corner decorations, so Fid's time frame works for me!

much more interesting and perhaps adding to value would be if we knew from where the blanks were. but alas there were so many small factories in the Sudetenland.

value ? a hard guess.

do Muslims collect Jugendstil ? are they allowed to have wall-hangers with holy places from Al-Quds ? do you sell at flea-markets ?

although by far the most beautiful building in Jerusalem I doubt a bit if it's a hot runner for Western buyers.

684 would likely be a production number of some sort.
