I came across this glass not knowing what it was when I bought my first piece a few years ago at a flea market. Thanks to my friends at Glasshounds and some research I know a little bit more about it and have acquired a few more pieces. The information below is what I have been able to find out so far:
“Beyermann Co. was established in Haida/Nový Bor, Bohemia/Czechoslovakia in 1865 by Gustav Beyermann along with Franz Schlegel Sr. and later managed by the brothers, Fritz and Max Beyermann. Although the company had many operations it produced mainly vases, cruet sets, liquor sets and glazed children's toys. The company had to be dissolved in 1928. Between 1873 - 1878 the firm was buying blanks from Harrach and the production was secured mostly through domestic craftsmen. The company had a sample shop in Paris and dealerships in Vienna, Hamburg and Berlin. The company regularly attended the fair in Leipzig. Only a few of their pieces were signed”.
