Made in Czechoslovakia label.
« on: October 25, 2021, 05:01:52 PM »
Does anyone know if the "made in ..." labels were ubiquitous, or did each company have their own design? I bought a trinket pot for one of the mystery sets and it had a Made in Czechoslovakia sticker on it. It also had another brand on the sticker I'm not familiar with. It looks like "L&H" not sure what that means..
Thanks

It might be an importers label, but whose I can't tell you.

That's an interesting label, I don't recall seeing it before. Which mystery set did you find an example on Walden?

Thanks Nev. Hi Anne. It is a pot for Mystery 121. I dont have the actual pot yet, but from the original photo it had this label and the remnant of a larger label that had been removed already. I enlarged the label to see if it could be identified. When i receive it I will see if i can get a more detailed photo

Thanks Walden, I have long suspected this was a Czech set (gut feeling - very scientific - not!)  I'd be interested to see the label and remainder of same when you get the pot...  sometimes even the remnants can help with an ID. (I recall identifying my decanter from the glue residue left on the glass by a label that had come off it.)

Pamela has the posy vase from this set in the Reich section here:

The candlesticks also look similar to other Reich patterns.

Reich is what I suspect too, I'll go rummage through more references and see if I can prove it. :)

I couldn't find anything in the catalogues to confirm it Anne, there are other sets online but no definite attribution.

I hope have some success Anne!
The ribbing on the posy vase is extremely similar to the ribbing in the 8877 Reich candlesticks. I initially thought they might be from the same set. I'll send a photo when I get a chance.
Do we know if the molds used by Sam Reich's company made in house? I think a time machine might help here..

Hi Walden, I don't know but molds are something we need to explore in more detail, as I'm pretty sure that the same molds were bought by different glasshouses, which could explain why, for instance, we see Bagley State and Libochovice 1880-1884 pieces that appear identical. Some glasshouses seem to have made all their own molds, others bought them in, whilst yet others made some and bought others. I'm going to add a section to the GTS website about moldmakers shortly.
