The over a 100 year old catalog page, is rare to find in itself, and the content just as hard to acquire. All we can do is admire what used to be produced and understand what the usage was for certain types of glass pieces no longer relevant.
There is a German website glas-musterbuch.de, which excels in their presentation of glass documents, catalogs, business cards, postcards etc. Since the 100 year mark is the copyright end, these images are now under the 'public domain' category.
