Mystery Print #1

 Here a little puzzle for you. An unsigned print of a winter landscape. It looks to be a woodblock or linocut print as the bleed through of the ink is significant.


The feel of the composition is Austrian Secession c1905 but this is just a guess. The only clue is a faint and tiny embossed stamp which appears to read "L'Escargot Du Paris". Surely not !! It might be a retailers, gallery, publishers or owners mark.

Any help would be appreciated.


Help has already arrived - thanks to Gerrie.
This print is by the Austrian artist Carl Moll (1861 - 1945) who has been subject of a recent posting on Modern Printmakers blog -  http://haji-b.blogspot.com/2011/02/carl-moll-secessio-plebis-in-montem.html
