Antique Moser Art Glass

Antique Moser Art Glass is original decoartive art glass produced by the Czech-based manufacturer Moser Glass.

Brief history

The foundations of Moser art glass can be dated back to 1857 in Austria (now the modern-day Czech Republic) when the company Moser & Sons started to produce various objects out of glass that were later engraved, carved or painted on. These items ranged from vases, pitchers and goblets, to plates, trays and even candlesticks.

Moser art glass pieces eventually became so popular that the company started producing art glass items for monarchs like Franz Josef I and Edward VII of England.
