Sacks. The Sacks firm were very close contemporaries of Gerte's shop so given the lack of a brand we can not rule this out. Often was the case that a shops signature on their case pieces was an additional cost. These were extremely expensive items for their periods & often viewed buy their buyers similar to an auto dealer charging you to put his advertisement on your car.
