Can anyone identify the Czech glassworks who marked their wares with this foil 'JS'/''SJ' label, please ?

Probably dates from the 1930s.

Hi, it could be the designer's initials rather than the glass house if it preceded the second world war.  Any chance of getting a picture of the object?

The label appears on the underside of a perfume atomiser bottle and a perfume flask from a (presumably crystal) trinket/vanity set trio. No markings on the atomiser head.

Iíll be posting photos of the whole trio on the glass trinket sets section shortly, but thought that I would try to get an ID of the label from GMB Czech-glass section first.

(In my first post, Iíve inadvertently omitted to credit the photo of the label to Patrick Sturkyn).

Josef Schussheim & Co.  Leipzig, Saxony - Refinery/decorator 1922 on

Jšckel & Schwuchow, Arndtstr. 6.   Leipzig, Saxony - Refinery/decorator active c1925

Josef Schuster & Co. Nurnberg less likely as the did advertising stuff and their label included ampersand.

Not really, country on label is where the glass was made, decorator might have had an office in Cz too but not a lot of point as only 160 or so km from glassmakers in northern cz

Anyway the JS is exact match for first one above in Hartmann.

Just a thought, they could be cz based just maintaining a showroom in Leipzig to be near the Messe. Hartmann source is Glasindustrie 1933 mine is 1925 but they are not listed there. Without more detail we cannot be certain but label is definitely Josef Schussheim's and not the other 2 I gave. He seems to have vanished in 1938 but may have managed to get to UK and/or US.
