While looking for pix of Pollax, I discovered a couple of links which I hope might be useful as well as illustrate some of these patterns.Lord
Here's an old advert / catalog image showing the Lord
service in a 1951 cataogue. (page down...near the end)http://www.glassrevue.com/news.asp?nid=3214Boule
are mentioned in the text towards the top in connection with Schrotter
but my Czech is sadly lacking :roll: and no images of those. Boule / Pollax
Does this mention in Pressglas-Korrespondenz Anhang 21, NovÃ½, Pressglas und Kristallerie im Isergebirge 2004-1-21
Modegeschmack im Nutzpressglas Ã¼bernahm
mit Erfolg auch die Firma SklÃ¡rny a rafinerie Josef Inwald,
Praha, fÃ¼r die Rudolf SchrÃ¶tter kommerziell erfolgreiche,
funktionalistische, gepresste Nutzglas-
Garnituren â€žDuritâ€œ und â€žDuritopalâ€œ (1927-1929; aus
stoÃŸfestem Glas), â€žBouleâ€œ (1935) oder â€žPollaxâ€œ entwarf.
suggest that Boule and Pollax are two names for the same design or am I reading it wrong ?Candlewick

There are a couple of (not very good ) pics of Perforal and Lord here on the Teplice Museum website on the Rudolfova Huť page http://www.muzeum-teplice.cz/rudolfka/rudolfka.htm
and a better shot of a Perforal Cake Plate which seems to have been popular in the States (without name change !) here

An article at the Teplice Museum site mentions three other designs: Bull, Argos and Orlow but no mention of Pollax and Boule.http://www.muzeum-teplice.cz/historie/ema1003.htm
and a pic there but nothing to say which pattern it is !!!
