Unidentified marks

Postby huszas76 » Sun Jun 09, 2019 2:12 pm

Dear Collegues!
I friend asked me, try to identify the maker and the origin of this sewing compendium.
There is interesting, because the town mark is a unicorn, and the maker's mark is cyrillic.
I think, it's the and of the 18. century, or maybe the beginning of the 19.

It is Schwäbisch Gmünd, but I have no list of masters of this town.

I know that Schwaebisch gmünd used the unicorn hallmark, but do you think there was a master who wrote his name in Cyrillic?
How common is it in German?
