The history of the glass factory Moser.
Back in 1857, a businessman named Ludwig Moser founded a glass factory in Karlovy Vara, which received the name of its creator - Moser.For long sixty years, Ludwig managed this enterprise, and it grew and flourished.
However, the entrepreneurial vein, which was inhibited by Ludwig from his grandfather, who was the owner of the only kosher dining room in Karlovy Vary, did not allow him to go broke.Moser immediately decided to produce stylish products aimed at satisfying the most exquisite tastes of the local aristocracy.Ultimately, most political leaders and other prominent figures were fascinated by the wonderful products of their Mozersky crystal, which rightfully received the name "Crystal of Kings."
The list of regular customers of Ludwig included names as Edward VII (King of Great Britain) and Elizabeth II (Queen of Great Britain), Alfons XIII (King of Spain) and Pope John Pavel II, as well as many others.It is interesting that Emperor Franz Joseph I granted the Moser Count's title.Given the fact that the famous engraver was a European, similar in those days was almost impossible.
At the end of the 19th - beginning of the 20th century, Moser began the production of immovable crystal, using unique, environmentally friendly processes, thanks to which he developed a solid crystal sparkling as lead but without its use.The secret of a successful recipe lies in the unique combination of raw materials of the highest quality.The immoval enamel Moser appears from the classic “Czech crystal”, but having additional advantages:
From an environmental point of view, melting does not pollute the air with heavy metals and, therefore, does not damage it and the health of glassblinks.The composition is chemically more complicated, which is a technological advantage for the technique of grinding edges and developing engraved decors.
It has a higher refractive indicator (more than 1.5), i.e.The glass is more brilliant and sparkling, it has great light permeability.It stains well and gives spectrally cleaner colors.
The basic colors of the Moser Alexandrite (light purple), beryl (light green), topaz (honey brown), rosalin (light pink), aquamarine (light blue) and eldor (yellow) are of origin from the flowers of precious stones and are characterized by softerAnd pleasant shades.Melts with an admixture of rare -earth elements and oxides of metals.Color Alexandrite has special specifics, it changes color in fluorescent light from light purple to light blue.
Note that in 1923 the Vatican ordered a set of glass products from Moser specifically for the residence of Pope Pius XI.In the 1990s, the glass factory made a wonderful crystal cross, which was soon presented with the Czech President Vaclav Gavel as a gift.
Messe Moser: We do not produce, we create.
It is difficult to find in the world a group of artists collected under one roof that would work under pressure such as a group of glassbuilding in the core.For the manufacture of a vase, more than 40 glass masters are required.Glass on a glass pipe is sometimes heavier than 25 kilograms.Inaccurately cut the edge or inaccurately engraved ornament are not subject to repair.One small inattention is enough, and as a result, the work ends with fragments.It is this tradition of elite creators who give all their forces in teamwork, that is the secret of the enduring quality of Moser.The further success of the brand largely depends on them.
In the morning, Crystal Moser can revive the interior with its brilliance, like flowers.At night, its color changes and warms the space of exalted elegance.Over the past 160 years, only a few have been able to take possession of the color, like glass -free moser.The cult shades of Moser are just as bright as artists with oil paints.As a rule, the tones of Moser were created by long experiments, and the glass plant for generations carefully guarded the correct proportions of coloring ingredients.
