    Description

    Otto Prutscher’s stemmed glasses are among the most beautiful Jugendstil glass designs for the upscale dining culture. Their bright colours stimulate our senses and cover the entire colour spectrum in differently coloured variations.

    Prutscher uses the square as a decorative element and decorates the rim of the glass. At the shaft he varies the geometric cut in a modified form. He applies the cut in a chain-like manner creating the impression that the stem is composed of glass cubes arranged in offset rows.

    Only the most experienced glass makers mastered this difficult technique in the glassworks of Meyr’s Neffe in today’s Adolfov/Czech Republic. If one accidentally slipped while cutting the decoration, the entire glass was irreparably defective and unsuitable for sale as a faulty work.

    Otto Prutscher created a decorative classic with these colourful glasses in the geometrically austere decor, which should not be missing in any glass collection of Viennese Jugendstil.
