    Awesome pieces! You are a man after my own heart because I love collecting the various colors of a particular decor! What a great collection of Mimosa in all the colors that were produced. I can't wait to see your future postings! Thanks for sharing!

    I see now what you mean about three pieces! I'd always missed that second photo.


    Little is known about the importers who brought Bohemian glass into Australia. The same is the case with those who brought it to The US and Great Britain earlier than 1900.

    However in my research I have come across a photograph at the Powerhouse Museum here in Sydney of an object: 91/1323-18 Photographic print, mounted in album, interior view, the western transept from the dome in the 1879 Sydney Exhibition 'Garden Palace' building, paper / albumen / silver, photographed by Messrs Richards and Company for the International Exhibition.

    Check out the statement of significance where Geoff Barker notes:

    This photograph was taken looking down the western transept towards the Macquarie Street entrance. In the background we can clearly see the magnificent glassware display of Thomas Webb and Company while the foreground is taken up with Austrian glass and 'fancy' articles, including the work of Erlaucht Graf and Harrach Sche. To the left are the Austrian and German Courts. The over-exposed light from the windows along the arched roof and galleries suggests a long exposure was necessary to illuminate the displays

    There are a series of photos and comments there at the Powerhouse. Some of their details about the Harrach firm are slightly incorrect. It should read "Erlaucht Graf Harrach'schen". I note too that a firm in Haida Novy Bor, Carl Hosch or Karl Hosch provided chandelier(s) for “a cathedral in Sydney”. Which cathedral I am not sure. Certainly I know that the windows at St Andrew’s and St Mary’s cathedrals were supplied by a very famous English firm Hardmans. From personal experience I know that Carl Hosch probably supplied a lot of glass from their famous catalogues.

    Thank you Vetraio50
    What a great photo (Link above)... 1879 !!!
    Have spent an hour or so playing with it in Aperture but can't really resolve much more than the magnified view on the link ...
    ... have you come across a floor plan / list of exhibitors ?

    Added the 2nd photo a few weeks back when I figured out what the "Edit" button was for ... :-)
  9. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    I normally just add four at the one time - photos that is ..... then remove what I don't want and add again through the edit.
    Glad to help.
    No, I don't have the extra information of the floor plan / list of exhibitors.
    I've got to be more pro-active I suppose.
    Mind you, I bet there are similar items from the big exhibitions in Melbourne a year later in 1880. Where would you find them?
    I'm not sure who the retailers would have been in those days.
    I do note that in the photo shown Thonet was represented by James Lawson 243 George Street Sydney. I think the son became the auctioneers of the same name in 1886. Thomas Webb had premises in Bond St, Sydney at 27a.
