Sugar toungh is it German?

I have been in Berlin and found this sugar toungh. Its normal size problem is it has no hallmarks at all. Its clearly biedermeier in style. My estimate is around 1820. Biuedermeier or Empire - could be earlier than biedermeier. Decoration the flower bowl with a romantic heart. Its a nice piece - but...

Re: Not Fabritius guardein but Frigast makers mark

However the Frigast mark should be listed in the section with guardein marks as its a very confusing similarity if you dont know.
