The buyer greatly overpaid for this item. Given how common it is and this particular item's condition, the ending price is hard to understand. This was made in the US, not in Germany as the seller speculated. Additionally, this form was reproduced by Stamm House in the 1990s. The reproductions are easy to differentiate from the original as the latter are pulp and the former aren't. I believe the sustainable price on this item in this condition is less than $60.
