Are you sure it's really from this locality?

Yes, I am for sure it is from Viu Valley, I have seen several like this from that location, in musuems, and in collections. They seem to be rare, as I have only seen a few. I have two old labels, one states Val de Viu, the other states Falin Lake.

Luca, not sure what ? is meaning.

Best Regards,
