    This is my next addition of glass from Ernst Hantich & Co. Haida (Novy Bor). This is a Johnolyth decor made between 1931 and 1934. The vase has dimensions of 21 x 17.5 cm. Painting is done between two layers of colorless glass. Design by glass technologist Karl John. Signed Johnolyth.
    Karl John later worked for the Karl Wünsch refinery, which had a glass with a similar design patented under the name "Rhodos".
    Updated May 6:
    At the time of production of this vase, the glass company was no longer called Ernest Hantich & Co., but W. Hantich & Co.

      Johnolyth glass is so rare to find in the U.S., and I suspect they didn't make a lot of it to begin with. I've been after an example for a long time, especially the example with the dragon fly :)

      Your example with the angel fish is wonderful!

      Updated May 6: Ernest Hantich & Co. was restructured in 1931. 2 companies were established: W. Hantich & Co. and L. Hantich & Co. The successor company was W. Hantich & Co., whose decisive owner was Wenzel Hantich (son of Ernest Hantich).
      At L. Hantich & Co. had the decisive owners Louisa Hantich (wife of Ernest Hantich) and Adéla Krawany. Louisa subsequently transferred her share to Adolf Rasche (owner of the glass refinery of the same name). This company focused mainly on trading in glass.
