It all began more than 160 years ago when Czech engraver Ludwig Moser breathed life into Moser Glass when he discovered crystal glass and completely transformed the world of luxury glassware. 

Since then, Moser Glass has carefully preserved the traditions of the old masters by merging timeless tradition with innovative modernity. Discover how master craftsmen combine traditional glassmaking techniques with modern innovation. 

1. The beginning of masterful handicraft starts with a render of what will then turn into the beautiful gold artwork on the crystal glass.
