Thank you again for the reaction and sending the link.
Very nice to see that the models of measuring glasses hardly have changed in all the years they were used.
Do you happen to know from what year the company started producing that kind of glasses?
If there is a way obtaining ancient pricelists and so on, it would be very marvellous but I think that will be very difficult.
Your reply is certainly very helpfull! Anyway : Thanks a lot for it.
kind regards,

Joost

Joost,

Keep yours eyes open for a Delius catalogue (Amsterdam glassworks), I have one which I will add to the Glass Study in the future.

Some of the catalogues on here http://www.glas-musterbuch.de/ have glass measures in them, mostly towards the end. It does, however, mean hours of looking!

It's a lot of work but certainly worth it and looking at all those beautiful glassworks makes time flies!

Hello Anne,

Nice to get a message on this topic again. Thank you for the beautiful pictures.
In the meantime our collection grew steadily. Lack of information is still the big problem.
I hope someone reads this and knows any litterature or sites that can provide any information on these measures. We shortly bought ANTIQUES OF THE PHARMACY by Leslie Matthews. The book hasn't arrived yet but ...who knows.
Any suggestion is very wellcome.

all the best!

Joost

In the attachment one of our latest acquisitions

Hi Joost, that's a nice example!   :mrgreen:

Did you see the large uranium green one I posted a while ago? It's migrated south now to live with a certain uranium glass collector who also inhabits this board, but we still don't know any more about it other than its big and it glows! http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,23597.0.html

Hi Anne,

Yes I noticed it.
A pity there is so little information about this kind of glass......

regards

Joost
