This bit on Reichenbach was posted by austrohungaro:
"Reichenbach was born in Munich in 1872. He signed his work as Irgl Reichenbach, and he's mostly known as an interior designer. Studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Munich and later he studied with Obrist and Debschitz, and at the same time he learnt the craft of glassmaking at the Benedikt von Poschinger's works. Later he set up his own workshop in Berchstesgarten and later in Tegernsee, where he produced furnishing items: furniture, clocks, textiles, glass... In fact it was his designs in glass (both artistic and utilitarian) that made his name as a designer. "
