Nice polylobed ewer in Moser Karlsbad glass, in a gradient of amber to red currant, patterned with polychrome enameled oak leaves and insects. Heat applied gold and silver tassels adorn the ewer. The history of the Moser glassworks began to be written in the mid-nineteenth century. In 1857, the glass engraver Ludwig Moser (1833-1916) created a small workshop, home to a store of hand engraved glass, for the rich clients from the spa town. Without even realizing it, he laid the foundation for a company whose products became highly sought after, attracting the attention of the emperors, kings, popes, representatives from politics and world stars. For generations, improvements were made to the art of glass making to reach the current level of perfection. Moser glass has become a symbol of wealth, social status recognized, refined aesthetic feeling and respect.
