Prague Map for Moser Glass
Moser sells unique, high quality glass made at their factory in Karlovy Vary. The Moser Glass shop in Prague is located on the main shopping street, Na Prikope, close to Wenceslas Square.

Upstairs inside their prestigious shop are a wonderful set of rooms where their glassware is displayed in glass cabinets and on long tables.

The range includes bowls and vases, decanters, Champagne and wine glasses, and all manner of other drinking glasses and beautiful glass products.

Moser sells porcelain dinner sets as well, laid out for visitors to admire.

The history and development of Moser Glass is fascinating. From its beginnings, it created a formula for manufacturing glass as hard as rock and as brilliant as lead crystal, without using lead. The composition is highly suited to engravings and more ecological than lead crystal.

Moser utilises potash-lime glass. The raw materials used for making this are silica, potash, other chemical substances and recycled glass. The manufacturing process then determines its hardness, brilliance and colour.

In making Moser crystal, the glass is heated in the furnace up to a temperature of 1470C. The melting process lasts about 15 hours, as the molten mixture gradually becomes an incandescent substance.

It is then "cooled" to around 1280C and the glassmakers begin to work on it, forming objects.

Moser uses pot furnaces. Each furnace has six to eight pots (glory holes) from which the glassblower, using a long iron blow-pipe, lifts out the required quantity.

To visit the glassworks where Moser crystal is made, join our tour to Karlovy Vary, which includes a trip to the Moser glass factory: Karlovy Vary Sightseeing Tour or take a dedicated glass factory tour: Bohemian Crystal Sightseeing Tour.
