His collection was exhibited at The Corning Museum of Glass in 1963 and there was a catalog published:

A copy should be available to you through Interlibrary Loan via your local library.

I found the following Corning Museum of Glass piece with a provenance of "Albert Christian Revi" collection in our "collection browser":

I will check with our Registrar to see if we have other pieces from Revi.
