The year 1925 is given in the article on Schulhoff in the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians; it is not, however, specified if this is the year in which composition was completed, the year in which the premiere took place, the year of the first publication, et cetera.

The premiere did take place in 1925, in any event, and it seems publication took place in 1929. For some more on Schulhoff and on his quartets, see this rather interesting article from Music & Letters. - ES

Autograph @ ONB has date July 29 1925. That answers the question more or less (given that autograph scores don't always give exact dates of composition beginning or end- sometimes being dated well after completion- but will accept this answer :) ) - ES
