  • Tiny engraving with impossible signature!

    Good morning all.

    I've owned this tiny engraving for a few years and have never been able to read the hand-written text beneath it.

    I've enhanced one image to make it clearer, but it doesn't make it much clearer to me! Can anybody recognise the style of work or (incredibly) read what it says?

    These is some water-damage but it does not encroach upon the engraving.

    Thank you for your help.

    No idea who the artist is. The location is Lindau Harbour in Bavaria, Germany. The writing on the bottom left is an abbreviation for Original Radierung [original etching]. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lindau
