By "The King of Glass", Moser Karlsbad, Czechoslovakia. The Moser glass factory was named after Ludwig Moser (1833-1916) and established in Karlsbad (now Karlovy Vary) in North East Bohemia in 1857. The engravers followed long established Bohemian design themes of hunts, stags and wooded landscapes, which appealed to the native population. Moser glass first became famous for the quality of their engraved decoration.
