Welcome to a reference site for the decorative arts. Here you will find information for Bohemian (Czech) porcelain and glass. There is also information about Imperial and Royal Porcelain Factory, Vienna and Angelica Kauffmann porcelain.
There are fact pages concerning the hallmarks, logos, factories, decoration types, pottery types, and shapes, as well as a gallery of pretty pictures.
The site is dedicated to the identifying, collecting, selling, and buying of Bohemian decorative arts.
There is a little bit of information on the Libbey Rock Sharpe Crystal, Indiana Glass Company, and the Hazel-Atlas Company.
I am not an expert on any of these subjects.
A special thank you goes to hundreds of people who send me marks to identify.
