DESCRIPTION

As early as 1848-49, Ludwig Lobmeyr delivered chandeliers to the Palace of Khedive in Cairo. Starting in the 1870's, a significant collection of valuable glass objects were created, mainly in collaboration with architects and Orientalist experts Franz & Gustav Schmoranz. Delightful, abstract patterns in colorful enamel painting and gold were applied to the hand-blown, cut vases and plates.

In commemoration of an exhibition at the Museum of Islamic Civilization in Sharjah (UAE, 2015) a pitcher from the "Arabian Series" has been put back into production. The design is by Machytka & Schmoranz from 1877. Inspired by the form of an early Islamic metal pitcher, the decoration is a collage of different Oriental patterns. It takes Lobmeyr's painters 40hrs and five firings to finish the detailed enamel painting on the glass. The new pitcher is barely recognizable from the original and will bring its owners delight for just as long.
