Current count of stonecutter''s marks in database: 77

Remarks: Some marks in the stone are because of age pretty blurred. On this site outlinings of marks are as I interpreted them. In some cases the stonecutter's mark is so blurred that it was impossible for me to find the correct interpretation. In this case the original photograph is shown. Visitors are encouraged to send me your interpretations even if I have it already. By clicking the mark o photograph of the selected mark will be shown.

Stonecutter's mark #10
Workshop: unknown
Period: 13th, 14th, 15th Remarks: Determined time frame is based on the information about origins of the building. Some German site explains that "W" is an initial of a master (German: Wieland) and "+" means that the stonecutting was done for a church. I do not support this explanation because the same mark can be found on Rajhenburg castle which is not a sacral building. It is not very probable that in an area so small two masters would use the same mark.
Findings
Object:
Location: Column inside the church.
Remarks: The mark also appears on the painted coat of arms on the ceiling of the church. This evidences about a special importance of the master.
