Loetz


Loetz glass was founded in 1840, in Austria, by Johann Loetz. They produced art glass, glassware, vases and much more. They were best known for their gold glass which was similar to Tiffany.

Johann Loetz died in 1848 and his widow took over the company until 1879, when his grandson took over. By 1899, they were one of the leading makers of glass and won the grand prize at the Paris World Exhibition in 1900. One of the most popular Loetz glass patterns was the Tango series. These pieces usually had two-toned, single colors, on plain surfaces, with contrasting handles or lip wraps. In the late 1920’s thru the early 1930’s, they introduced the popular New Wave Art Nouveau series.

By 1939, business was bad and the factory burned down in 1940. After World War II, the company was nationalized and closed for good in 1947.
