Moser glass first became famous for the quality of engraved decoration. They employed brilliant engravers including Edward and Johann Hoffman. The engravers followed long established Bohemian design themes of hunts, stags and wooded landscapes, which appealed to the indigenous population of Bohemia. Moser was also influenced by European art movements and produced designs inspired by European Baroque works, Japanese ceramics and Islamic goldsmiths. During this period Moser was solely concerned with the decoration of glass, the glass blanks being bought in from other manufactories, such as Meyr’s Neffe and Kralik.
