"Die zwei Fensterflaechen mit den farbigen Band stammen aus Greiz (Thueringen) und waren im Flur eines Hinterhofes verbaut. Hersteller war Penzig, Fenstergroesse jeweils 100 cm × 95 cm. Ich habe festgestellt, das die duchgefaerbten Glassteine durch UV und Zement oft stark geschaedigt sind." [My translation] The two glass block windows with the colored band come from Greiz (Thuringia) [Germany] and were installed in the hallway of a backyard. Manufacturer was Penzig, each window size is 100 cm × 95 cm. I've found that the colored glass blocks UV and the cement is often severely damaged.

"Diese Glasbausteine stammen aus dem Treppenhaus eines Stadthauses in Greiz (Thueringen). Der Zustand war aufgrund der UEberdeckung mit Beton sehr schlecht - der Zement hat das farbige Material regelrecht zerfressen. Eine Erhaltung war seitens des Eigentuemers nicht vorgesehen, so das dieses Glas leider abgebrochen wurde." [My translation] These glass blocks are from the stairwell of a town house in Greiz (Thuringia). Their condition was due to the overnight coverage very poor with concrete - cement has the colored Material eaten literally. A conservation was part of the Owner's not provided, so unfortunately canceled this glass been.
