Buchholz and Zelt was a firm in New York City that imported glass and silver from Bohemia. This drawing is part of a collection of drawings including cut, engraved, and art deco designs, created by the firm, presumably for the US market, and sent to Bohemia to be made into glass or silver. Many of the designs were inspired by objects in European museums. Most of the drawings are in the Bohemian nineteenth century style and a minority are stamped with the name of the glass company involved, such as Mühlhaus, Oertel, and Harrach. Buchholz and Zelt would likely have placed their own label on the glass.
