When we consider who made the glass - historically we do know that Friedrich Spahr, Friedrich Deusch and Manfred Veyhl (all producers of silver overlay products), did buy most of their porcelain and glass in the blank. In this case a large amount of glassware came from WMF  in Geislingen which is not far from the Schwäbisch Gmünd studios of Friedrich Spahr. Equally an amount of glass to be overlaid also came from Jean Beck a famous glass designer in Munich. For a more detailed look at the history of silver overlay follow the link highlighted below.
