Thank you for contacting us. Is there any chance the book you are asking about is "The blowing-wand; a story of Bohemian glassmaking in Ohio"?

"A story of Bohemian glassmaking in Ohio" Horn Book says "Jaroslav Piontek, American descendant of a Bohemian glassmaker, never lost his dream of finding the missing ruby glass candlestick to match the one his family owned. How he did come upon it and how he saw his great-grandfather's valuable formula for ruby glass in use again ... Jaro's own success in fulfilling his dream of becoming a glassblower's apprentice instead of a farmer. Realistic working scenes, accompanied by antagonism, strike threat and fire, and boarding-house camaraderie and romance in mid-19th century Glasstown are well handled."

This is the closest match I've been able to find. When I search our catalog, these other two books also come up, but the stories aren't as good a match.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
