Web Description: 
This vase was made in Bohemia, the largest region in what is today the Czech Republic. In this gallery, both Czech and German names are used to list the places where glass that dates before 1930 was made. This is because Bohemia fell under the German-speaking Austrian and Austro-Hungarian Empires from the early-19th century to 1918, when it became part of the independent republic of Czechoslovakia.
