Sometimes it just takes a bit patience....
The annual Pressglas-Korrespondenz meeting took place in our region this year and on this occasion
we met Mr. Düsterhaus, which thankfully gave me the chance to ask a few questions.
Actually this was the first design he ever made while working for Walther. I forgot to ask the date, but
according to the CV on his website this should have been in 1972 then.
He told me the design was hand-carved into a plaster model, which was then transferred into metal.
The press mould had no upper rim, so the plunge just drove into the glass mass and the shape of the
top rim was irregular and different from piece to piece.
