There is another Ruckl named glass house that Jitka L. discussed in her published book of 2012, this information was provided by Ales Kral, and explained by Ales as to content.
SKLEN?NÁ KRÁSA. HISTORIE NOVOMITROVICKÉ SKLÁRNY.
GLASS BEAUTY. HISTORY OF THE NOVOMITROVICE GLASSWORKS.
The cover photo of the reference book is a basket which has much in common with the Romania creations of recent vintage. The owners were from a different branch of the large number of Anton Ruckl's descendants and their family. This book is not longer available.

I was surprised by this book because the timeline was right in the middle of the Tango Sklo Exhibits also curated by Jitka Lenickova. Where she had a 5 display grouping of Ruckl Glass by the Nibor-Skalice- Svelnicka plants. When it was the first time that Ruckl finally was recognized as part of the top Czech producers for the deco interwar glass era. There was also a poster prepared for these exhibits, the Ruckl version was highly interesting and contained several line drawing pages, some of which were in Deborah Truitt's possession.
