This piece was produced by Glasfabrik Johann Loetz Witwe, Klostermühle, Bohemia (today Czech Republic).

Loetz Witwe glass has always been a speciality because of its purity and fiery colours and was initially purchased as raw glass by North Bohemian refineries, who refined the same through painting and grinding. Later, due to the high regard of the glass, the company started production of speciality luxury items. The glass artfully imitated all types of Onyx, Jasper, Carnelian, Malachite, Lapis, Inlaid glass, etc. The luxury glasses that emerged from the factory received the highest awards.
