Here is what is left of the great glassworks Loetz

the first picture is the amazing Villa Von Spaun now  flats but once the house of the Loetz family
the second picture is a view though to the out houses behind. The last few standing walls of the once great Loetz Factory.

Now this is Ruckl

Not sure if this is the original Ruckl factory known from the 1900s it is  possibly a latter acquisition.

This one is still fully working and making an cutting hand blown glass.

Finally (I think it's finally - I have a lot of photos and may have missed the odd glass works)

We have Stepanek - the front door of a small two brother glass works, making glass in the old style but doing the utmost best to ensure no one passes their work off as old (everything is signed and their pontil marks are very distinctive).

Beautiful stuff

Hopefully the future of Bohemian glass (there are quite a few others like this!)

-oh and yes that is Deb Truitt -(our troupe leader) in the picture!

cheers

hope you like the street views
