Spot on about his wife and the Jasmine floating round the house.
The youngest son Joseph (1905 1988) completed his apprenticeship from 1920 to 1923 at the
company of his brother Albin Traut. He learned the manufacture of various glassware, such as
ampoules, test tubes, vials for various purposes, aquarium accessories, cotton and perfume
tubes. After the apprenticeship Joseph Traut continued in his parents home, self taught in the
production of glassware (without patterns) and the Kartesiani Tauchers (bottle devil). In 1924
Joseph Traut successfully passed the journeyman's test. In 1924/25 he worked with the
brothers Max and Hermann Traut. The workshop was located in the estate of the Kathinka Hopf
Sonnenberger Str. 21. In 1926/27 the first Kunstglaswerkstatt (Art glass workshop) under the
direction of Max and Hermann Traut was opened in Sonneberg. Joseph Traut also introduced
his skills to this company.
And founded his own company at the age of 22.
As to whether or not he made glass, I have been to Neuhaus with a translator, knocked on doors and spoken to people who worked for him.
He could also knit glass there's a rather good example of a parrot made in 1937 for the Munich glass fair.

lovely video
the red cocktail set that you've commented on a thread on here, can be seen in the video.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks M, The Max Traut set is rather good, neither their video nor my photo of it do it justice unfortunately but the photo of the other set captures it's magnificence perfectly. It was a rushed photo, I had 48 hours there and obviously I was focusing my time on the important stuff - cocktail sticks  :-)  I managed to search about 1% of the archives in this museum and my phone camera wore the battery down pretty quick.
The glass industry in the area is in decline, and if you are quick you might be able to see the last of it before it's gone, I nearly cried when I heard of the house recently bulldozed to the ground containing hundreds of molds  :'(
