Waltraud Neuwirth pages 80 & 81 back of the photo, the gentleman in a white coat is a master glassblower and an autodidact. He's not a packer he's the teacher.

Thank you Coup.  That is good to know.


I have two of Walthraud Neuwirth's books and they are truly absolutely excellent -
Farbenglas 1 (a present from Michael on this board, and which was such a good book I had to search to get Farbenglas 11 from Germany)
and
Farbenglas II

I love them and refer to them frequently and always refer to them if I have a query about Bohemian glass or particularly 19th century glass (although later glass is included as well).
I am interested in the development of colour in glass and they are indispensable for the incredible information they contain.

The colours of glass looks like great books, I sort of prefer the fadenglas to the farbenglas but thats just for personal collecting :-)
Were yours just as expensive or did I pay over the odds at 50?

no I think mine was a similar amount for the Farbenglas II ( Farbenglas I was a much treasured present and once I'd read it I needed to have Farbenglas II :)  )
They cover different colours in glass and I needed Farbenglas II to complete the information.  F II also has the index in it for both books iirc- it's about 400 pages for F II  plus 280 pages for F I )

They are absolutely superb reference sources.
