A Brief History of Glass in the Czech Lands
The Czech glass industry originated near the historic Bohemian city of Jablonec nad Nisou in the mid 16th century. Master smelters came to the Jizerske Mountains from Saxony, Germany, to take advantage of the area’s rich resources of wood and water and begin producing glass. In the early days, smelters were very dependant on their employers, who paid them small salaries on a quarterly basis. These craftsmen who migrated to Bohemia were the first in the long line of glass making families.
By the 19th century, the woodlands had been depleted, and the craftsmen began moving into the valleys. The Jablonec region soon became the center of the glass works industry. Predominant German ownership gave rise to famous manufacturers such as Riedel and Swarowski. Czech entrepreneurs did not spring up until early in the 20th century, with the largest wave expansion taking place during the interwar years from 1918 to 1938. One of the greatest influences of the time was Alphonse Mucha, a world-renowned Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist who lived in Paris.
