Recent developments mean that we are gaining a greater knowledge of the range of glass designed by Rudolf SchrĂ¶tter. Whilst there remain a number of patterns designed by him, but names of which remain unknown, the view of what can be definitely attributed to him, and which was made by Josef Inwald, include the following patterns:
Lord, 1922 (Jacobean)
Bull, 1935 (Boule) (Candlewick in the USA)
Olympia, 1937 Possibly 1936
Breitecken, 1940 Now known to be as early as 1928
Orlow, 1940 Now known to be 1935
Teplitz, 1947 (Note: This date is inaccurate, as the pattern appears in the pattern book of Vereinigte BĂ¶hmische Glasindustrie A.G. (name for Inwald during the German occupation of the Sudetenland) and therefore design/production date must be before May 1945).
I would like to thank Eva PankovĂˇ of the Regionalni Muzeum, Teplice, for sending me some material which has helped to widen our knowledge.
I shall be posting images of each pattern, as time and copyright issues permit.
