One of the most prolific producers of European art glass in the late 19th century, Loetz Witwe Company was founded in Czechoslovakia in 1836 by Johann Eisner. It wasn't until 1855 that ownership was transferred to Susanne Gerstner, widow of Johann Loetz, for whom the company was renamed. "Witwe" means widow in German. Several decades later, Gerstner's grandson took over the business and began its most prominent era. During this time their craftsmanship won accolades at the Paris World's Exhibition in 1889 and the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904. Their later Art Nouveau styles, largely inspired by Louis Comfort Tiffany's work, became increasingly popular throughout Europe and the United States. Two of their most notable innovations were the Marmorietes technique and octopus glass, the former creating a marbled red, pink, or green surface, and the latter displaying white curlicues on a dark, mottled surface resembling the sea creature. Following World War I and bankruptcy in 1911, the company began to decline rapidly, despite their attempts to regain recognition through collaborating with acclaimed designers. Loetz Witwe closed permanently in 1947.
