Here is some information regarding the Paul Richter Company:

  • This 1920 Richter Co. catalog is part of our collection. If you are able to visit the Library you are welcome to view the catalog; we do not loan our trade catalogs.
  • The record for this catalog in our collection also includes the following information: "Probably items cut from Libbey blanks by the Paul Richter Company, which existed between 1914-1940 and produced the Maywood and Floral patterns."
  • This volume of The Pottery & Glass Salesman contains a number of ads from the company, as well as some information about the company's sales and inventory.
  • Figure 7 in this ACGA article is a Richter Co. piece.

Unfortunately, I was not able to find a great deal of information specifically on this company. I have attached one of our bibliographies on American cut glass - some of these books might include more information. If you are interested in consulting some of these resources, we do loan select materials from our collection through the Interlibrary Loan service. Your local library can contact us through OCLC or they may send an Interlibrary Loan form to us by e-mail. We send copies of articles and will also loan certain books if a second copy is available in the library collection. Books are loaned for a four week period. For further information, please see our web page.

I might also suggest contacting the American Cut Glass Association (http://www.cutglass.org). They may be able to help you find more information.
