    Hi Al are they just a decorating company? those shells look like you know who!
  2. Alfredo Alfredo, 4 years ago
    I had not noticed the shells. Now, tell me, how can you "decorate" a Loetz shell? Unfortunately, nothing is known about this company. Get to Internet and let's do some research!

    I believe Hantich were exporters. I've seen some Harrach pieces with their mark. IIRC

    Ernest Hantech (1893-1978)
    There is an article on the firm here in Czech:
  8. vetraio50 vetraio50, 4 years ago
    Sorry "Hantich", not Hantech.
  9. vetraio50 vetraio50, 4 years ago
    There is another article by Jitka on Hantich Tango here:

    It too is in Czech.

    Simply copy the text and put it into Google translate and you will get something like this :
    "Already in 1922 the company offered a wide variety of densely stained glass and painted molded glass (specialty glass grenade, for example), products made of leaded crystal with cut decoration, glass of "special crystal" (I did not define) ap. It was primarily a decorative drinking glasses - decanters, jugs, bottles, liqueur cups, wine cups, beer glasses, pitchers, cups cognac, various kinds of dinner sets, vases (eg bar), jars, bottles, etc.. In addition, a featured part of the production of glass for use as blanks for Bory refinery. Another part of the production program was then commercial glass - apothecary jars, inkwells, covers, holders, shoes and more. An interesting part of the then production was undoubtedly densely decorated with glass, where they appear krakelování techniques, optical forms, split decor, pressed foot, richly molded edges of objects, various decorations, etc. in the form of fusions."

    and so on.

    krakelování = craquelure/ crackle I think.

    right right they also were responsible for jonalith. I wonder what else they made. it sounds like they were fairly large. Jonalith is fairly nice glass. it looks like they were doing what Loetz and Harrach were doing. Another company to add to the unknown but significant file...
  12. Greatsnowyowl Greatsnowyowl, 4 years ago
    (Harrach was also making shells)

    A translated quote from the Article by jitka

    " A year later, in 1922, the company has significantly expanded. Companions rented other glass factories. The company had at that time in half a year sublease also famous glassworks in Klášterský Mill Rejštejn at the Bohemian Forest, where they were also extremely skilled glassmakers, and Mary works in Falknov-Kytlice"

    The text read:
    Over three hundred exhibits mostly Czech glass production can currently watch the visitors of the Regional Museum in Teplice on the show "Tango glass - changes color contrasts." Tango craze that started in the first decades of the 20th century, when the European dance floors dancing began dashing Argentine tango in costumes for which were characterized by distinctive tones of orange, red, yellow and green dresses and black suits of Lords, was reflected in the applied arts and new colors and color contrast Inspired also glass companies - appeared Tango Tango color and glass. Even before the First World War marked the term Tango glass not only brilliant yellow, orange, red and green opal glass, whose color was achieved by a cadmium sulfide, but also for the typical glass contrasting de-cortex in other color combinations. Tango glass is especially eye-catching phenomenon of Czech glass throughout the first half of the 20th century, and the exhibition presents it in its many forms and changes over time and by region. But it is not just a presentation of a certain type of glass. It was at Tango glass is very easy to document how the initial design gradually dilutes cultivated in commercial production. However, this is a question that goes far beyond a single exhibition. Especially after the first World War II was Tango glass from the Czech lands in most exported, mainly to North and South America. Exhibits at the exhibition alongside Czech museums, galleries and archives also lent private collectors from Austria, Germany, USA and Czech Republic.

    I am sending everybody on my list a document I put together from the list of glass companies on Internet. I went through the entire alphabet pulling out every mention of a Czech maker. The only one I could not find was Tomaschik
