Pigeon or Dove label = Alfred Taube, Germany 1950-92
« on: December 05, 2005, 06:38:30 AM »
Hi,
Please has anyone any idea?
Gold/silver-ish looking trapezoid label, stylised dove/pigeon facing left, possibly Italian, but? I know an image would be good, but again, copy-right prevents...
TIA,
Marcus

Nothing like it in Hartmann, have you looked through labels in Murano forum?

Can't we see it for educational purposes?

I can confirm it is; if you look closely at the label (I have the same vase in front of me) you can see that the script around it says "Alfred Taube Vohenstrauss" - but admittedly id is easily missed or worn off.

Which gives us a date - Franz F├╝ger established Glass refinery/decorators 1901 Steinsch├Ânau, Bohemia. But my German is not to hot and Carmen is sleeping. I think he worked from the Glass school in Steinsch├Ânau for Lobmeyr's Neffe, J & L and set up his own refinery in 1925. After WWII set up F├╝ger AG (mit Glassfabrikation nieder ?) with his brother Adolf.

In 1950 the firm became Alfred Taube and closed down in 1992.

(Hartmann p.598)

there must have been a time the firm was run as F├╝ger & Taube? i┬┤ve seen
vases and liqueur sets labelled in such a way. Or is F├╝ger & Taube a completely
different glassworks? (would be an astonishing coincidence)
