* Loetz company

specializing in the creation of high quality glass, was founded in 1836 by Johan Loetz in Klostermuhle, in Bohemia, included in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In 1898, after several years of experimenting on technical variations in the production of art glass, the company launched a patent for the technique of producing deep blue glass or metallic gold, colors by which Loetz is known worldwide. But it was really during the Art Nouveau era that Loetz gained its letters of nobility. Indeed, at the Paris Exhibition in 1900, Loetz shared the first prize with the famous glass artists of Art Nouveau: Tiffany, Gallé and Daum. From 1903, many Viennese artists worked for the Loetz glassworks, such as: Koleman MOSER and Josef HOFFMANN as well as other members of the Wiener Werkstätte. The main creator of the Loetz company between 1903 and 1914 was Maria Kirschner, born in Prague and then living in Paris and Berlin. Unfortunately the Loetz company suffered serious financial difficulties and was dissolved in 1939. The color and the relief of the special iridescence and typical Loetz glasses give them an extremely refined touch. The innovative and original forms used by Loetz and inspired by glass objects from Ancient Persian and Roman Art, are typical of glassworks in Art Nouveau style. Other equally popular motifs by Loetz are vases inspired by nature and decorated with original "swan neck" or "peacock" color in iridescent blue-green tones.
