... the word document has Brychta as headmaster/director from 1948...

Ah, right.  When I clicked on Anne's last link last night, 'nothing' happened.  I didn't notice that a tab appears at the bottom of the screen...    Now I see that Brychta did indeed function as director. 

By the way, well done with identifying 'new' Schrotter designs.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Hi Pamela,

That adds to the case a little  :o as I posted that piece in a separate thread and got:

Quote from:
Blumenvase „Fächer“ Nr. 4928
grünblaues Berylglas, Entwurf Lotte P. Moser 1925
Ludwig Moser & Söhne, Karlovy Vary [Karlsbad], 1928
aus Mergl 1997, S. 122

The auction states:
Böhmen, Karlsbad, Moser, Lotte P. Moserová 1925, 1950–1975. This data is repeated elsewhere.

Notice that Lotte P. Moserová (b. 1897) was the daughter Rudolf Moser so the designer name in PK is correct... What is puzzling are the 1928 and 1925 dates, does 25 refer to design date at 28 production? Clearly this vase was in production by 1929 and what is the significance of 1950-75. Manufactured again? She had relocated to France just before WW2 and stayed there.
