Additional Information : There are export catalogues from 1949 produced to present the wares of multiple Czechoslovakian producers and also one catalogue from a Czech exporter in 1952 which clearly show that the colour range was extended, form three to possibly five or six variants, two are opalescent. Smoke colour was included in both catalogues. Amethyst was not one of the original colours. Many of the designs for Barolac glass were registered in the UK. However during the war it seems as though the moulds may have been misplaced in central Europe.
