An original design sketch showing an almost identical table numbered model number 181 has been preserved in the archives of the company Friedrich Otto Schmidt company. Because of its very expensive mechanism our model certainly cost considerably more than the 260 krones quoted on the sketch.

We would like to thank Mr. Péter Rostás, Budapest, and Mr. Klaus Lorenz from the company Friedrich Otto Schmidt in Vienna for their friendly help and for providing us with the documentation.
