According to Henri Reiling, glass eyes were an important part of the output of the Blaschka Studio during the 1870s. Glass models became the more important product after 1880, but other items such as eyes, tubes and dishes were also sold.
Some names appearing in this book have been researched by Henri Reiling in the later Blaschka business record books. These include Anton Elb, who regularly bought Blaschka's products, probably costume jewelry; Reiling found only a mention of a specific item: brooches.
