Our library does not have archives for Lobmeyr. I have photocopied the information I have found(some in German, most in English), which I would like to mail to you. I am not seeing any mention of Monteith’s name, but just the designer, who was a member of the family firm. Apparently the same fixtures were also installed in the Kennedy Center. I regret that we do not have any trade/company catalogs from that time period; it is possible that similar lighting fixtures were sold by the company as well. I also came across some correspondence in the Carder Archives with Monteith’s name on it.
The Corning Museum of Glass is currently closed to the public effective March 16 through April 22, 2020, as a precautionary measure for public health and safety. As a result, resources available to answer your questions are extremely limited. During this closure, you may be interested in searching our Ask a Glass Question FAQs or reviewing our Research Guides on various topics. We also highly recommend checking out The Corning Museum of Glass on YouTube for hours of artist demonstrations, lectures, and special events. Thank you for your patience.
