    Dear Allaires,

    Thank you for sharing the glorious Keulenglass beaker. It must be miracle of survival in that size and condition.

    Since my last email I have found that I am collaterally descended from the medieval German Kunckel family of glassmakers and I am now trying to find (with no success) a glass specimen coeval with their early time.

    Apparently the name Kunckel (the German plural Kunckeln even sounds like Conklin) evolved into Conklin over the centuries as they emigrated from Bohemia and Germany to Lorraine to Nottinghamshire, England and finally to Massachusetts.

    I guess, for me, pictures of these great objects will have to suffice and happy I am to see some.

    Best regards,

    Lawrence Conklin.
