It is possible that the Teplitz glass lamp shades from the catalog of R.WILLIAMSON & CO., - TEPLITZ GLASS from 1905 (and also from 1909) may be from the production of the Ernst Steinwald & Co. glassworks. So far, it has been attributed to the Pallme Koenig & Habel glassworks. However, the PK&H glassworks is not directly from Teplitz, but from Kosten (Kostany near Teplitz), while the E.S. & Co. is directly from Teplitz. When comparing shapes from the R. Williamson catalog from 1905 and the Ernst Steinwald catalog from the Cornig museum (see: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/284647-ernst-steinwald-and-kralik-dcors?in=442-activity), I found at least 2 identical or very similar lamp shades. These are numbers 1867 and 3632 (photo 1 - R.Williamson catalog), resp. 2838 and 2991 (photo 2 - Steinwald catalog).
Another possibility, however, is that the products of several glassworks from the Teplitz area are represented in the R. Williamson catalog.
