Wilhelm Kralik, an employee of the Harrach glass works in Neuwelt, Bohemia, was granted a British patent on October 25, 1880 for a method of "ornamenting glass articles". The last photo is a scan from the book

Abridgments of Specifications
Class 52,
Furniture and Upholstery
Period-A.D. 1877-83.

Patent Office Sale Branch
38, Curator Street, Chancery Lane, E.C.

This volume is in the public domain, and is available as a free e-book on Google Books.

It is interesting that the patent was filed in England - Harrach produced a wide range of products for the English market in the Victorian era, so it does make sense.

    For anyone wondering who C.N. Blumberg was - he was a barrister- also courtesy of Google E-Books:

    Thanks for sharing that info on the patents Records.
    Thanks too for this great vase.
    The name 'peleton' really is quite descriptive, too!
