    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.

    Image 1. sugar bowls, French, Vallérysthal & Portieux 1908

    Image 2. Graesser, table top, molded applied fruit glass items, circa 1900, Germany

    Image 3. Skolaude - Gablonz (North East of Prague), figural brooches, Austro-Hungary/Bohemia

    Image 4. Baccarat 1916, cut crystal vanity acessories, Garnitures de Toilette, France

      Thank you CW members for giving my post a love, always much appreciated. :-)

      truthordare, This just came back to the top of the heap today, and that page from the Vallérysthal & Portieux catalog was immediately familiar to me, because of my most recent obsession with that cabinet full of blue milk glass. };-)

      Thanks for that link to that German glass website. That looks like a substantial reference. :-)

      Thanks keramikos,
      I agree, 5 years ago, a kind glass collector gave me that link and I still find it very useful. Take care.
