Milk glass goblet, - Stiver, Florence.

This is embarrassing. I found this pattern some time ago on Siegmar Geiselberger's site, but like an idiot, didn't take a note of it and now can't find it. Does anyone remember it?

... the plot thickens...

I've found the original page from Pressglas Korrespondenz, but between my flaky German and the Babelfish translator, I'm not sure what it means. My take is that the original pattern was Baccarat and made from the 1840s onwards, but that what looked like reproductions began to appear in fleamarkets in the 1980s? Is that a correct reading of the German?

If so, is this one is probably a reproduction? The same pattern also turns up occasionally in a light opaque sky blue.

I'm pretty sure these are by Stiver in the Florence region. They have been making these repros in every conceivable colour since the mid 60s.
