Time, I thought, to share a little obscure reference material.
These ‘chromolithographs’ show displays from the 1862 World’s fair in London. Sometimes it’s just nice to date pieces.
1. Schaffgotsch, to me an unknown Silesian glass maker, (oddly must have been new to the printer too as they classified it as Russian (at the time Silesia was part of Prussia)
2. Cristalerie De Pantin the great Paris glass maker (later to become Monot & Stumpf) -and other pieces
And two London companies
4. Dobson & Pearce
If I get time there are many more of these!
