Bohemian Glass in the Ajuda National Palace Collections

The glass collection dates largely from the second half of the 19th and early 20th centuries, a period when the Ajuda National Palace was inhabited by monarchs, namely between 1862 and 1910. Heterogeneous in nature, it incorporates objects from the main manufacturing and trade centers of glass that operated internationally at that time, including the region of Bohemia, particularly the Moser glass factory, which is discussed in the present article.

Consisting mainly of pieces produced from the glass blowing technique, the collection is further enriched with heraldic decorative elements, found mainly in sets of a utilitarian nature, which gives it a most unique character.
