Prior to World War II, the making of glass eyes was largely concentrated in Germany, specifically Lauscha. In New York, probably in the 1930s, the glass eye making firm E. & S. Danz was formed by brothers Emile and Septimius Danz; with the threat of war looming, their brother Richard went to Germany in 1939 and returned with a four year supply of materials.
