Two Phenomena of European Glass: Venetian and Bohemian Glass) Glassmaking is an age-old craft that spread from the ancient empires of the Middle East via Greece and the Roman Empire to the West. However, only two places on the map of Europe mastered the secret of glass manufacture, grasping its every detail and enhancing it to unprecedented heights of beauty admired to this day: Venice, Italy, or, more precisely, the Island of Murano, and Bohemia in Central Europe. Two heirs of the ancient techniques that both locations developed in the modern times with the decorative principles of the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
Matchbox) Abounding in Matchbox models, this booklet documents a pastime that was enjoyed by several generations of children and adults. Lesney Products, a British manufacturing company, produced miniature models of cars from the late 1940s. What made its products unique were their matchbox size, model/box combination and low price. The Matchbox 1–75 series was soon followed by further product lines that innovated and varied the vehicles’ designs (Superfasts, Major Packs, King Size) and, last but not least, the vintage Models of Yesteryear range made as adults’ collectibles. During the sixties and seventies in Czechoslovakia Matchbox models came as a revelation. They were admired for their extraordinary precision that copied the originals, as well as for their functionality, bright colours and durable materials. These were qualities lacking in other toys and even in many real cars produced in the Eastern Bloc. During the era of Real Socialism, the magical label “Made in England” came to be a symbol of the unattainable West. Matchbox models were not only a popular iconic children’s toy, but also became an adults’ collectible.
