Bohemia, a historical region that today constitutes most of the western Czech Republic, has been associated for centuries with the production of exceptional glass products. Situated in the westernmost region of the Czech Republic, Bohemia also refers to the land in which Bohemian royalty reigned. Bohemia began as a duchy, then became a kingdom in the Holy Roman Empire, and was then subsumed as part of the Habsburg monarchy in the Austrian Empire. A place of great change and upheaval, Bohemia is renowned for its production of Bohemian glass which remainds today as one of the most desirable collectors’ items today.
Mayfair Gallery hosts an exceptional collection of Bohemian antiques, many of which demonstrate the very best of Bohemian glass production. Bohemian glass, also known as Bohemian crystal, boasts a centuries long history of being internationally recognised for its quality and design. In fact, the earliest evidence of glass-making sites in Bohemia dates back to 1250. Of Czech glass producers, Moser is the most renowned and respected, Mayfair Gallery’s selection offering stunning items by this famed manufacturer.
