Bohemia was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and has always been rich in natural forests and raw materials essential for the production of glass. The rich tradition of the Bohemian glass dates back to the 16th and 17th century. The Bohemian glass production of the 19th century was mainly controlled from Vienna, and the term ‘Bohemian Glass’ is not only used for glass produced in Bohemia, but also in Austria, Germany and even Poland. Most Bohemian glassblowers were of Czech origin, while the factories were mostly German. The skills were often passed down from father to son.
The undisputed leader in the field of colour and iridescence techniques was Loetz, who in 1889 received the first prize for his objects at the World Fair in Paris. The top pieces of Loetz were objects with the Phänomen motif, wavy or feathered shades of colour with a strong iridescence, applied to the external surface of the (still hot) glass.
