Walther "Diamant" pattern
« on: June 28, 2010, 03:54:32 PM »
In the 1934 Walther Musterbuch on pressglas-korrespondenz there is a lidded pot (page 16) and a candlestick (page 18) shown as pattern "Diamant", which appears to match one of the mysteries we have on the trinket set site here: Mystery Set 1. The catalogue image makes the pot look square or diamond shaped but the pots that TC has and that I have are triangular but are the same pattern (so two together would make a diamond shape.) The candlestick TC has is diamond shaped, and the tray is diamond shaped with the two side points cut off so it has 6 sides. Confusing, isn't it?

"Diamant" isn't shown in the 1931, 1933, 1935 or 1937 Walther catalogues on Pamela's Glas-Musterbuch website nor does Pamela have any examples of this pattern in the Pressglas-Pavillon website, so can anyone tell me if this was a short-lived pattern or anything else about it, or does anyone have examples in other colours which we could have photos of for the website please?
