In Jablonec, Floor had made arrangements for the two of us to photograph bead sample cards in the archives of the Museum of Glass and Jewelry. We spent two intensive sessions there and the information gleaned will be reported on once we have time to digest it. The records are in Czech and require tedious translation.

Floor also rented a nice apartment that she has stayed in previously. I think she already reported that in the interwar period, the occupants of the house worked in the bead industry, stringing beads. They worked outside in the garden, which is strewn with rejects. Floor has already picked over this garden, but I had to have my go at it, with the result that I found a baggie-load of old pressed glass beads.
