Dorflinger Knowledge Search

In reply to Michael Krumms search for information on Kalana patterns, I have compiled a two page bibliography of information and resources. Here is a brief summary. If readers want to get in touch with me to receive the entire bibliography, I am a member of the Carder Steuben Club, and they can obtain my email address through the directory.

Gail Bardhan

According to the CMoG website, Kalana, a combination of cutting and acid etching, was introduced by Dorflinger in 1907, in an attempt to produce less expensive but still elaborate glass for the high-end market. It was made in a variety of floral patterns that were influenced by Art Nouveau, an artistic movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries that originated in France and was inspired by nature. Kalana became quite popular, but it was made for a relatively brief period; the company stopped production in 1921. The Kalana patterns were designed by an Englishman, Charles O. Northwood, who came to work for the Dorflinger firm in 1907.
