Birds and Cherries Glass Box - ID = Barolac / Inwald, Czechoslovakia

(1/1)

horochar:
Does anyone know who made this satin glass box?  I'm assuming pre-1980s U.S., but beyond that I can't find any references to the piece.  Could it be Tiffin or Fenton?
Thanks.

Mod: Images gone but more in the topic below

B & M:
This is a Barolac pattern (Inwald, Czechoslovakia). I have seen these boxes with the moulded mark and also own a small opalescent pin tray with a variant of the design. I don't know the date of introduction, 1930's or early post war - neither I, nor as far as I know, Siegmar Geiselberger have been able to find a catalogue reference for this pattern. Perhaps Marcus will be able to add more.

An opal example is shown on the great glass website here:

The original name for this pattern was "Spring". I do, in fact, have a catalogue that shows it (John Jenkins "Barolac" catalogue). I also have a copy of the original blueprint drawings for the item.

B & M:
Glen, thanks for your input, may I ask the date of the catalogue & also if there is any chance of sharing the blueprint images, they sound fascinating.

Glen:
Steven - unfortunately the catalogue is not dated  :cry:

As for the Blueprints - we have every intention of showing them all just as soon as we possibly can - and also all our Barolac information. We are just waiting for (hopefully) a little more information to fill in the whole picture. They are amazing, and very lovely.
