This item is in the "Dorothy Blair" archive.
These notes detail Dorothy Blair's visit to the Chung Ang Glass Industrial Co., Ltd. in Sungdoug-ku, Seoul, Korea in October 1959. She visited the company with Mr. and Mrs. Fistick of Smith-Scherr-McDermott, a company that appears to have been contracted to help improve output for foreign trade. The first four pages are exclusively notes and the remaining three pages combine notes and photographs of the Chung Ang Glass Industrial Co., Ltd. There are five photographs, all black and white, that show various workers engaged in glassworking and blowing. Loose note pages with hole punches along side are attached together with staple at top left to form a note booklet; each page is numbered.
"CMG object file no. 60.6.3" -- written along top of first note page. This CMOG object file includes eight pieces of tableware that were given as a gift to Dorothy Blair after her visit to the factory; they include two double invertible wineglasses, two cups, combined drinking glass and candleholder, pitcher, and two decanters with stopper. The smoky-purplish color of the tableware was due to the use of manganese and cobalt.
