I have one with essentially identical markings. I know for sure that it is pre 1956 because by then I had acquired it used. I have consulted a friend who teaches history about the hyphenated Czecho-Slovakia (used for only a short time). That combined with the fact that it was made in Graslitz would most likely put the manufacturer date into the late 1920s or early 1930s.

I used mine with mouthpieces from the 1950s for years, but found that I had to have the upper socket of the barrel turned out a couple of millimeters to fit current mouthpieces (apparently not all standards are standard). However, I love the horn and keep it as a back up for my Selmer. I have no plans to ever part with it.

Perhaps a consideration in whether or not you want to restore it would be whether it is HP or LP (mine is LP). If it is not also marked with that information, I would put it at the more recent end of the manufacture range.
