About Rindskopf "Pepita" range.
« on: May 29, 2019, 12:22:37 PM »
1 .- Where does this name come from "Pepita"?
2 .- Why baptize with this name the decoration of a crystal model?
If you consult this word in the Google translator, you get the following answers for the English language: Nugget / Pip / Seed. Effectively this Spanish word has that meaning; the translation is correct. But if one is Spanish (or if you consult a good dictionary) the first meaning you give to this word is that of a woman's name.
In Spain the men called JOSEF can be colloquially called PEPE (and these are very common names) so a woman called JOSEFINE is also known as PEPA and when they are young they are called with the decreasing ones: PEPITO or PEPITA according to be a boy or a girl
We think therefore that the name "PEPITA" of the Rindskopf crystal, refers to a woman's name and not a vegetable element.
But if so, who could this Miss PEPITA be in whose honor this model was baptized?
The Spanish references in the Rindskopf house are evident with series such as: GRANADA - ALHAMBRA - "PEPITA" ... This is explained if we understand that in the 19th century and as a result of the spirit of "Romanticism" Spain and the Spanish were "fashionable" for their "exoticism" and historical backwardness so close. While intellectuals, writers and artists from all over Europe visited Spain attracted by this imaginary "Romantic", brought by this fashion Spanish artists returned the visit by walking through Europe and triumphing on their stages.
One of these artists was: "Pepita de Oliva" an Andalusian dancer who triumphed in the theaters of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Russia settling in Berlin (all this in the 1850's).
We think it is in memory of this dancer that the name "PEPITA" was used.

**You can look for information on the Internet about Pepita de Oliva and you may find reasonable what has been an intuition, which could answer the questions asked.

I searched for some images, and to have these beautiful pieces named after a famous dancer seems to me to be very appropriate.
They flow and have glorious "moving" colours. ;D

Every day that passes I feel that this intuition that the name of "Pepita" for Rindskopf, is related to Pepita Oliva is stronger.
I hope that some Bohemian crystal specialist can confirm it or deny it.
You can search for information about Pepita Oliva on the internet and you may find it justified.
 * It seems that in the Czech Republic there is a type of fabric that also bears his name.
  * Pepita de Oliva triumphed especially in Prague and the newspapers of the time spoke of the "Delirium Pepitatorum" because of the impact that their performances aroused.

There is another name for that fabric design; In the uk, it is called "Hog's tooth check".
It's not as elegant as the other Pepitas - the lady or the glass. :)

Sue (M) in Spain to this design is known by the name of "leg of cock" (also not a very nice name),
seems that in the countries of Eastern Europe have found a more beautiful name:
