Letters on my glass - 'tis a Mystery

Much as it is ideal, it is very hard to keep track of all sources when writing. I keep a couple of tables of dates, people and companies on my site that are fully source referenced, and cross checked where possible, and try to always cite the most significant sources when I can. But even with that it is hard to keep everything synchronised and inconsistencies can appear between different parts of the data. Some stuff comes from memory too and my memory is awful at maintaining references to the sources.

If someone jogs my memory, I am always happy to add or update source references. I am sure that SG would behave appropriately.

I have enormous respect for Seigmar. He has done so much for pressed glass research. He is a great man.

It truly doesn't worry me if SG references me or not. It's not important. I only wanted to explain in this context what I had done and that I really did know about Rindskopf  :D

I have probably done the same thing myself too. Although I have to admit I tend to err the other way. I try to include everyone. On the front inside cover of our last NetworK journal I listed so many people who had helped over the 8 years of production that I ran out of room on the page.  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

And so, just to show what I mean....

Glen, I do update this because it is unforgettable  :D
Searching for another pattern today (in fact Angela B's butterfly), I traced Reich 1934 Tafel 75 # 8739 and just want to send it here today (prior to reading, whether we talked about it earlier  :oops: )

Another hint could be Scandinavia, the prisms of your stoevchen do very much look like a footed bowl given to me from Sweden last Christmas - link to follow - sorry, but we are in January still

... and latest updates today of my site did not include Christmas 2005

Pamela - I've just returned home (busy weekend) and seen this from you - many thanks.

I also have an update on this piece - and I will post it on my website very soon (I just need a little time...where does it go?  :shock: ) I have found the item in an Inwald 1914 catalog extract that I received some years ago from Milan Hlaves (Prague Museum of Decorative Arts). It is almost identical, but there are some small differences. I'll try and write it all out with the illustration, as soon as I can.

Thanks again.

Thank you Glen !
I need more time to re-read and investigate what I have got here. Fact is that pages of Neumann's 1915 Brockwitz catalogue are missing in PK, which SG sometimes does judging them to be not too important and necessary for all of his readers.
