INTERESTING PIECE OF HISTORY YOU MAY NOT BE AWARE OF -
The Moser Glass Company was founded in 1857 in Czechoslovakia. Ludwig Moser created high quality art glass. During World War II Moser Glass was taken over by the German government and most of the workers were put into concentration camps. The workers who were left were put to work for the war effort in tank factories. As a form of passive retaliation, the workers decided to make flawed glass that shattered on impact for the tank windows. After the war, Moser was one of only 15 companies that was granted independent operation by the Allied countries. It is still in business today.
