Lobmeyr Glass: A short explanation:
Lobmeyr Glass was founded in 1823 by Joseph Lobmeyr Snr. (1792-1855) as a high class retail store in Vienna specialising in art glass. Lobmeyr sold glass that he had designed and commissioned from various glassworks, some of which he owned at various stages. One of his daughters married Wilhelm Kralik, the owner of the Meyer's Neffe glassworks, and another daughter married August Rath, whose great-grandsons run the company today with its branches in Vienna and New York. Josef Lobmeyr's sons, Josef and Ludwig, took over the company after their father died.

Lobmeyr Glass has been a major art glass operation through the 19th and 20th centuries, and was closely linked with the very best in art glass at every stage. In the mid 19th century they commissioned enamel painted glass from Anton Egermann; at the turn of the century they worked closely with the major Austrian and Bohemian glassworks of Meyer's Neffe and Kralik; they were major players in the Wiener Werkstatte glass developments in the 1920's, employing Josef Hoffman as their artistic director and commissioning work from Hoffman, Michael Powolny, and Adolf Loos, amongst others.

Lobmeyr operated a glassworks at Steinschonau until 1945, but since that time Steinschonau became part of Czechoslovakia and now the Czech Republic. The Steinschonau glassworks is no longer part of the Lobmeyr company. But they have expanded in other directions, with a retail outlet now in New York as well as Vienna, and are still associated with the very highest quality art glass.
