Green Wineglass by Koloman Moser, Vienna, Meyr's Neffe, circa 1900, Austrian Jugendstil
Koloman Moser was one of the most important designers of the Wiener Jugendstil. He was a co-founder of the Viennese Secession and later of the Wiener Werkstätte. His designs for several traditional Viennese companies are among the most valuable objects on the art market and achieve high prices.
This glass was commissioned by E.Bakalowits Söhne and manufactured by Meyr’s Neffe, one of the most important bohemian glassworks around 1900, which supplied many Viennese companies.
Koloman Moser designed various glass tableware sets around 1900, the most popular being the “Meteor” set. This glass is part of the "Meteor" set.
