Notes

Řezníček, Ferdinand Freiherr von It's extremely rare to find one of those cigarette cases whose enamel painting is signed. Ferdinand von Řezníček (Wien, 1868 - Munich, 1909) is one of the few artists who produced such objects that signed them. He was an Austrian painter, caricaturist, and illustrator. Born to a noble Austrian family of Czech descent, he was a half-brother of composer Emil von Řezníček (1860-1945).
