THREE PHOTOS FROM A TRIP TO PAY HOMAGE TO GLASS IN EUROPE THIS YEAR. SADLY ALL OF THESE GREAT GLASS HOUSES ARE CLOSED. .(oops caps lock ! :) )
1. Regenhutte ( Bavarian side og the boarder) looked like they just walked away ..Noticed that the rear was starting to collapse .
2. Villa Von Spaun - Klostermühle - the main house survives as a private residence .. the factory long gone . Note the streets are paved with shards! Loetz
3. Lenora - Czech repubic - home of Kralik.. now empty.
it too looks like they just walked away.

I can recommend a long holiday in the region (I'll come too!! ) it is so lovely.

    Hi Belin merryXmas to you too!

    GSN just a small handfull . and one large blob from the bottom of the kiln that we left in Bayerischer Eisenstien at our gesthouse as they had a small collection from the differnt huttes in the area,

    Hi Obscurities , that sounds like a great idea. we would love to go again did not spend enough time there only a week . Jude just retired but we have aged parents so do not want to go too far.. perhaps the US next year to see some glass ???
  5. Greatsnowyowl Greatsnowyowl, 2 years ago
    what kind of glass do you want to see in the US? I guess the east coast has some great museums. I'd go to France CZ Austria Germany or England before the east coast museums though (if I had the choice)
  6. ozmarty ozmarty, 2 years ago
    Besides NY museums .. perhaps a Glassshound or twos collection not to mention all those great fairs all of you find such yummmy pieces at.....

    There is hope. When a Kralik descendant tried to buy back his family's property, the government did not allow it (I actually have the letter), but Jiri Ruckl was able to reopen a factory which is producing glass up to the present.

    Was it a question of ethnicity?
  10. Alfredo Alfredo, 2 years ago
    A combination of ethnicity in the case of Kralik--the family was expelled after the war-- and communist rule in the case of Ruckl, whan all the great glasshouses were nationalized into one vast state enterprise. The West Virginia Museum of American glass has a very interesting monograph about the post-WWII status of the Czech glass industry. Quite revealing, including a list of what factories had been nationalized.

    reminds me of when i was in romania on a business trip in the 90s -- their capital -- like our white house had goats grazing on the front lawn and curtains blowing out the windows -- no money to air condition -- ice was a premium

    large shopping malls 3 & 4 stories high sat vacant -- i often think if we do not get our act together this will be our future

    thanks for sharing the pics & experience

    Hi Bellin it is a cold morning here and it suppose to be Summer . Am I correct to think your name is Sean???
  13. ozmarty ozmarty, 2 years ago
    Hi epson233
    A lot of the old eastern part of Germany is like that as well villages and even large towns quite deserted and run down .. empty .the people gone west ... looking for a better ( more rewarding $$ wise ) future.

    very interesting on the nationalization of these countries and where the original owners got screwed -- ditto in romania with many of the families -- i swear i hope i never get tested in that type of situation -- would fail terribly

    I just was ordering glass a couple years ago and now they are closed also, it must be really a hit and miss if they are gone one day to the next !~

    Hi PDAM just noticed your posting ..
    Cheap Chinese and other glass has put many a small Hutte out of action also some very big ones who now get theirs made in Poland or Asia...

    Fantastic Ozmarty.
    What a great homage, and reason for a holiday:)
    It looks a beautiful area, very unspoilt and un developed.
    Its nice to see some of the factories have survived.
    Weird how they've just been left like that and abandoned.
