Card included reads: A Brief History: In 1934, Henry Schlevoght, a Czechoslovakian artisan introduced a line of art glass under the name of "Ingrid". Mr Schlevoght employed the finest craftsman of his day, and his line was enormously successful. Tragically in 1939, due to the out break of WWII his success came to an abrupt halt. Mr. Schlevoght fled Czechoslovakia leaving his glass molds behind. Now more than 60 years later, the C.I.O. Collection is dedicated to locating and repairing what are believed to be the original vintage molds, and eventually re-issuing the works of art first created by these talented artisans.
