Web Description: 
Lobmeyr's "Arabian" series displays the qualities - Oriental designs and outstanding craftsmanship - that added to the company's prestige. Orientalism describes a 19th-century European revival of Islamic and Moorish decorations that had originally been introduced to Spain during the medieval period. Lobmeyr's glass objects in this style were made in very small numbers.
