Item description for Ikora and Myra Glass by WMF by Carlo Burschel & Heinz Scheiffele...
With contemporary advertising and sales catalogues as its sources, this book represents the first exhaustive survey of the Ikora and Myra lines in glass produced between the 1920s and 1950s by the W rttembergische Metallwarenfabrik AG (WMF) at Geislingen/Steige. At the instigation of the then WMF director general, Hugo Debach, WMF had been making high-quality art glass (called Unika pieces, indicating that they were one-of-a-kind) as well as lines in mass-produced art glass (Ikora and Myra). First presented to the public to great acclaim at the W rttembergisches Landesmuseum in Stuttgart by museum director G. E. Pazaurek, these pieces are now much sought-after as valuable collector's items. Ikora and Myra Glass by WMF not only deals exhaustively with the history of this glass but also provides aficionados and collectors of Ikora and Myra glass for the first time with a complete catalogue of WMF products. The availability of this information makes it possible, first, to distinguish from the origin

Reviews - What do customers think about Ikora and Myra Glass by WMF?
Comprehensive Coverage of Vintage WMF Glass Jun 8, 2007
Excellent coverage for the 150th anniversary of the German metal and glass producer Württemburgische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF). Includes many photos of glass products and process used to manufacture them, reprints of product catalogues from 1928 to 1951, identifies all model numbers for the same period, and a complete written history of the WMF Ikora and Myra art glass lines. I look froward to equally comprhensive coverage from the other volumes in the series on WMF Ikora metal, lighting, and jewelery products.
