American pressed glass mould(mold) making companies.
« on: June 27, 2007, 09:45:51 PM »
Hi,
Please, a question for the US pressed glass contingent. It cannot be Island Mould and Machinery Co..... It may still be Hipkins, but are there any other US mould-makers, who are capable of having exported moulds to Czechoslovakia in the period 1920-1940?
If so, who, are they still in business, and if not, any ideas on where those company archives may be held?
Thanks in advance,
Marcus

Marcus:

The answer is yes but who is another story.  I have a list of moldmakers that I have extracted from Pressed Glass In America that I can email you but it only covers the period up to 1920.  You can contact me throught my profile here, I think.

I don't think many are in business any more and I have no idea where their records may be.  This is an area that definitely needs more study.
