Some additional information regarding my earlier posting:

Seems like there is some configuration backup present in /etc/lvmconf/vg.conf detailing some information of the "lost" vg. It give the VG UUID, Free and Alloc PE etc. Unfortunately the reported free PE size does not seem as I remember it. It says there should be 10GB allocated and about 27GB free. As I remember it I allocated all. 

I don't dare to use this config file to "restore" things for fear of breaking things even more and thwarting my chances of a complete recovery.
