A Lost Art

Before World War II the most gifted of artisans created one of a kind jewelry from specially made fabulous cut glass stones using materials and techniques known only to them. The materials were found locally and the techniques were passed down through the generations.

These exquisite items were found in the basement of a building locked and abandoned after Hitler took over Czechoslovakia. Perhaps they were made for a special order for a grand department store in Germany. We may never know the true history of these items. The original owner of the building was never found, so it was recently sold by the current government of the Czech Republic to a woman who discovered the treasures packed away in boxes as she was exploring her newly purchased building.

The items shown in the slide show at the link below have already been sold at special high end Antique Shows throughout the USA. Collectors have been moved to tears as they looked at these incredible works such as the world may never see again. I created this slide show for the purpose of documenting and sharing with you these historic one of a kind pieces of art from a time gone by.
