Multi Glass closed in the late 1980s due to insolvency after 80 years of making glass, but by 2000 four of its glass artists had bought the name and restarted production. This phoenix is very similar in style to one I earlier had posted, but it was old company production, and this is new company production.
The glass artists have continued to make Multi Glass animals and birds in similar style to the old production patterns, although they often seem more cartoonish. However their art glass production seems more creative and technical, albeit produced in much smaller numbers than the period prior to the first shutdown.
