Set of Wine Glasses
Vienna; "J. & L. Lobmeyer"; 1st half 19th c.
The glasses were made in the Vienna glassworks founded in 1823 by Josef Lobmeyer (1792-1855), later taken over by his sons, Josef and Ludwig, and in 1860 registered as" J. & L. Lobmeyer". The products of this glassworks were famous for their quality especially for polishing, cutting and enamel decoration.
They often adopted the decorative elements of earlier styles but harmoniously adapted to contemporary needs. This set is a good example of a fine combination of the delicate motifs of rococo and the strong, clear outlines of 19th c. cut glass.
