2nd word "Hochzeitsfeste" means wedding reception next I'm guessing "v." from Hans and Ludwig October 10th 99. I'm working on the first word :)

Gewidmet z = Dedicated to 

Hochzeitsfeste = the wedding party 

of Hans and Ludwig

I'm uncertain as to the significance of the numbers 5X99

Interesting ..that Helps

Thank You ...Wonder about the #s ...1899 or may 99?


The thumb part appears to be broken; that part should stand straight up not at an angle. I can see in your pic a dark line that looks like a fracture.

The thumb mechanism has gone through changes over the decades.  Yours is a relatively new style. The engraving is an after market offering.

The link is quite similar, especially the thumb mech. It also discussed engraving, charges for four spaces. (Yours has 4 spaces too). Note the price!!!

5x99 has some meaning in German but is not a date.
