I recently purchased this Fahrner ring, it is the first ring that I have seen with the Depose mark. I saw a photo of a few rings designed by Gradl from a 1900 exhibition in the Fahrner book (p. 31) but none of them seem to be similar. The book says that Fahrner had a ring branch of the business that closed in 1904, could this be a ring from that and could the designer be Gradl? Also, has anyone seen any other examples of Fahrner rings marked Depose?
