Thanks for acknowledging that my Grandpa, Gustav Tichy, was an artist. I heard from my Dad, Alexandre Tichy, that he was indeed a very dedicated craftsman.

Update: Our older brother, Gustav Tichy, resided in Brasil but passed away in the end of 2018. Alexander lives now in Georgia and is 85 years old. Ivan is 82, and lives in Florida. I, Georges, am 71 and live in California.
Cheers.

Pleasure us with some images of the marks. More than likely a Belgian platform or a completed Belgian sourced longarm with Tichy's name scratched atop.

As far as i can see its belgium made in 1928, not sure if i read it corectly. The history i was told was that it came to the North of Norway with som german hunters in the begining of the 30s.

Is it worth getting restord or is it better just using it as it is?

So is the address >>Moravska Ostrava<< or is Přerově on there too? There were a couple of Gustav's and one brother created a mess of things....


You know, there just aren't a lot of devout Gustav Tichý followers and if you spend say $2000 -$3000 U.S. of A. on a restoration, then probably you will never find someone to take it off of your hands @ the restored price. I would use it & enjoy it, being a proper custodian and keeping it functional.
