Six centuries of objects from five Czechoslovakian museums and more than 20 contemporary Czech glass artists. From the geographic region of Czechoslovakia known as Bohemia, came (and continues to come) a dazzling sequence of decorative designs and techniques for the embellishment of glass. The history of the Czechoslovakian artist is not simply a catalog of applied decorative techniques, but a sequential array of innovations and improvements that have often set the standard for the rest of the world.
