History

The Harrach glassworks is based in Harrachov, which is now in the CzechRepublic. It was established in 1630 and is still in production today. Harrach glass is rarely signed. Harrach glass blanks were used by most of the major Bohemian glass houses during the 19th century, including (but not limited to) Moser, Fritz Heckert, J & L Lobmeyr, Josephinehutte, Egermann, Goldberg, Muhlhaus, etc.

Harrach Glass is highly collectible and sought out from collectors worldwide. From their superb quality Biedermeir period glass, finely enameled, engraved and cut Victorian glass to their painted Art Nouveau work inspired by famous Czech artist Alfons Mucha, there is something that suits all tastes and interests.

The first industrial production of glass by glass factories in the Bohemia region dates back to the turn of the 13th and 14 century, when the first glass factories were formed. These were the strategic regions that began to build in the border areas untouched Ore, Jizera, Lusatian Mountains, Giant Mountains, Forest Maintains and Moravia. Since the mid-14th century, the oldest Bohemia glass rendered nearly transparent glass soda-calcium origin and created goblets, cups, and church windows (later enriched by paintings), among others for the Roman Emperor and Czech King Charles IV, who let them fill the window of Prague Castle.
