Trade catalog.
Loose leaves added to hardcovered spring-loaded binder with "Gräflich von Harrach'sche Glasfabrit" printed on cover.
A catalog illustrating cut and engraved tableware from the firm Cristallerie Wilhelm I. Lange. Most shapes are repeated with different cuttings.
Catalog is not dated, suggested date derived from date of material added at end.
Catalog includes 39 loose leaves (18 of which are numbered) with line drawings of glass tableware. Facing pages list the item number, description, size and prices in German Marks. An additional set of 17 loose leaves follows, with numbered leaves: 4, 7, 10, 13, and 16 which are the same as in the first set. Included is a sheet dated February 1948 which lists the requirements for German export business in the Soviet zone of occupation.
15 photographs (5 different scenes) appear to have been taken of a display of Lange's glassware, but not in their showroom. Numbers 270 and 272 are posted beneath company signs of Lange on the walls, which seem to be partitoned. Photographer's stamps are on the back of each photograph: A-Z Studio, Rudolf Tröge, Photo-Werkstatt H. Lindner, Puck Studios.
This catalog of loose leaves was received in a hardcovered spring-loaded binder with "Gräflich von Harrach'sche Glasfabrit" on its cover, however catalog pages within are from the firm Cristallerie Wilhelm I. Lange not Harrachov Glassworks.
CMGL owns a Harrachov Glassworks catalog in the same type binder with the same cover title (Bib no. 73374) It appears that Lange most likely purchased glassware from Harrachov for cutting and decorating. A few of the blanks in the Harrachov catalog appear to be the same if not very closely related to the shapes in the Lange catalog.
