The Czech Republic has a centuries-old tradition of glassmaking which has been famous worldwide during different historical phases. The first peak was in the 18th century when they became renowned for producing the highest quality Baroque-style glasses. The golden age of Czech glass production occurred from the early 18th to 19th centuries. It was during this time that the stunning Bohemian crystal chandeliers were exported around the world, establishing their reputation in the world of glass.

The artistry of Czech glass then came again to the fore in the early 20th century, largely thanks to the Lotz Witwe glass factory from Klastersky Mlyn. This factory was the premier and most successful producer of art nouveau-style glass in Europe. The last great era for Czech glass began in the 1950s. It was a harmonious combination of the long historical experience in producing quality glass and highly trained glass craftsmanship.
