History

The Theresienthal Glass company has a long history.It is based is Zweisel in Bavaria and Glass has been produced in that area since the 15th Century. This factory has been producing glassware since 1836. King Ludwig I wanted to fill his castles with luxurious chalices, glasses and dishes in the finest hand-crafted glass. Many of these historic objects at the Theresienthaler Museumsschlösschen Museum in Zwiesel which I can thoroughly recommend as worth a visit

The Art Nouveau style (c. 1880 to 1910) was a conscious attempt at modernism and the first departure for many artists from traditional Victorian design.Designers took inspiration from Japanese, Celtic and other folk art, moving away from classical European art instead influenced by the natural world. Typical Art Nouveau motifs came from nature: flowers, insects and birds. There are two distinct looks within the style: curvy soft lines and more austere, linear designs from artists, such as Charles Rennie Mackintosh
