"In this publication, which contains the results of intensive biographical research, complete with illustrations, Gerd Mattes explores the millefiori experiments and the research work done by Dr. Fuss, which subsequently served as a source of inspiration for later generations, including the well-known creative talent of Franz Pohl. For all those interested in millefiori, including collectors of paperweights or other millefiori-decorated glass objects, this is a most valuable piece of research and, in my opinion, a 'must-read' publication"--Page 63.
Includes bibliographical references (page 85-86).

In 1835, Fuss was awarded a prize for discovering a method for manufacturing ruby glass from the Purple of Cassius.
CMGL also has a transcription of Fluss's report on making millefiori objects (CMGL BIB 142517, TP859 .F99 2014).
