Default Glass ID KB-???

I need help finding out what kind of glass I have. It came from a lampworker who worked mainly in 104 but dabbled in boro. The rods are all labeled KB-###-C. One of the reds is KB-121-C. Anyone know what this is?

Thanks! I will check some of the other numbers and see if they match up.

The names I found to match the numbers were different on some of the sites. The color chart from Facet Design had all of the colors listed so I am going with their names. For the beige colors I have Soft Rose, Light Beige, Silver Petrol, Silver Brown, Iris Savanna and Tabac Light.

I think the winners there are silver petrol, iris savanne, silver brown and Tabac light.

There were complaints about cracking, and Kugler has stated that it is up to the artist to check compatibility, so you may want to proceed with caution.
