Currently on display at OG4
Much in keeping with the aim of embellishing all areas of life with art, Koloman Moser (1868–1918) designed objects of delicate glass art, including long-stemmed wine and champagne glasses as well as ornate receptacles in various shapes and shades. From 1899 Moser designed countless models and drafts for vases, carafes and glass services for the chandelier manufactory E. Bakalowits Söhne, which were executed by the largest Bohemian glass foundries, the glass factory Johann Lötz Witwe and the glass manufactory Meyr’s Neffe. His liqueur glasses featuring cuppas with optical molding, which were designed in keeping with the international curvilinear style prevalent at the time, captivate with their slender stems. The tulip shape and the overly long stem invest the hand-blown glasses with particular elegance.
