Glass Catalog Source Identification if Possible
« on: February 17, 2019, 02:59:22 AM »
I have been asked to research this catalog in an effort to write an introduction to a monograph that will be sold by a museum. Although I do not know the exact year of the catalog, my inclination is that is is likely post WWI based on some of the designs on the vases.

The catalog contains all types of glass, and this is a small sample.... Some fairy lamps for oil, and some vases. Many of the vase shapes and designs are reminiscent of Czech interwar production. The descriptions are in German, English, and Spanish in the catalog.

I do not recognize the BH mark shown in the cover, which also shows the title in the three languages. It reads "Novelties in Glassware". I have also shown a page describing the fairy lamps for layout presentation in the catalog.

Any help with an ID of the logo would help me to research the company that produced it.

TIA for any help.

I am guessing, but the logo may be that of the publisher. In German, 'V' can stand for 'Verlag', which means 'publisher'. Therefore, 'BH Verlag' might be a place to start. The first language in the listing is German too. The German National Library (Deutsche Nationalbibliothek) might help track the publisher down. Their catalogue is online: https://www.dnb.de/EN/Kataloge/kataloge_node.html.

Hope this helps (even a little).

Thanks for that. It provides information and a lead I did not have.
