after poking around a bit (and looking at the thread darkmagus linked to), it looks like a Sieber frame based on geometry & lugwork.

nice looking frame. what size is it? (out of pure lust and curiosity )

and do you know what the rear spacing on it is?

very possibly is a Sieber (it's certainly a Georg Fischer BB shell, and that's a Swiss product), Craig Griffiths could probably confirm it, he has a website and is a Swiss bike expert.
