Location, factory, date not indicated. Style of ware and German writing indicate a Bohemian factory, ca. 1890. Czech curators visiting the library in the late 1990s thought it to be possibly from the 1860s; Jane Spillman says that many of the designs are post 1886, such as those copying Amberina, that the volumes may be 1890 or later.
Ware in v. 7 bears writing in German.
Designs are full or reduced (1/2?) size; some done on pages, some cut on outline and pasted on.
