Gerbruder Pallme Konig and Habel. This glassworks was formed in 1889 by merging the Palme-Konig glassworks (Kamenicky Senov) with another factory owned by Wilhelm Habel (Elizabeth-hutte in Kostany). It produced relatively high quality glass (frequently mis-attributed). Amongst the range were patterns of glass trails wound around iridescent glass. These were then reheated and placed in a mould to form the shape and to partially submerge the threads into the surface. This method of production means that pontil marks are rarely observed on the glass unless other additions or additional manipulation is required. The forms tend to work with the media rather than controlling it. A great variety of shapes and colours were produced. So as well as the commonly attributed green vase with melted threads a whole range of forms and colour were produced. Attribution is still very difficult. A good book needs to written and is complicated by the fact that the glass is never signed and some superb reproductions exist.
