This was my great-grandfathers. According to my grandmother, it must be from the late 1800's. Could it be Bohemian? He lived very close to the Czech border. Possible?? Thanks for looking :)

    Thanks everyone for loving this old glass. I have a problem with my e-mail: all e-mails from CW started a few days ago to end up in my junk e-mail. It took me some time to figure out what was happening. I'll have it fixed tomorrow by my son. I am not that good with computers :(

    Yes, items like this show up in glass catalogs from Bohemia and Germany from the late 1800s to early 1900s

    Thank you so much! Paul71, you have been very helpful. This is probably a dumb question, but I am asking anyway: Where do you find those catalogs?
  5. Paul71 Paul71, 1 year ago
    Not a dumb question at all. The Rakow Research Library at the Corning Museum of Glass holds many catalogs on microfilm.
