Mstisov Glass Identification Guide + Gallery

Back to Glass Encyclopedia Home

The Mstisov glass works, originally named Eintrachthutte, was founded in 1868 by F. Fischmann & Sons. At first they made glass rods for the jewellery industry, and later expanded into tableware. Frantisek Zemek became chief designer in the 1950's, and was probably best known for his 'Rhapsody' and 'Romana' ranges of glass bowls and vases. Mstisov became part of the Borske Sklo National Corporation in 1958.
