I found this at Goodwill last week. I was attracted by the flowers and didn't know much about Berchtesgaden except it is where Hitler's Eagles Nest was I believe. The gold tag says Lithograpische Wertarbeit Meier Kachel. I didn't have much luck researching it, was confusing. Anyway, can anyone help?

    Thanks for the info Hedgewalker. It translates to Lithographer work worthy Meier Kachel. Now I need to find out who he was. Thanks again!

    Thanks scandinavian_pieces. I love the flowers. Maybe some day I will figure out more about it. That's the fun of collecting, isn't it?

    Nice souvenir piece with the alpine flowers Enzian, Edelweiss and Almrausch (indigenous to the Berchtesgaden alpine area) Since it is printed on- not hand painted -not sure they disclose the artist. Meier Kachel(means "tile") made many of these -have seen quite a few.

    Thanks Mary. I'm glad to know which flowers they are.
