Harrach Tango Glass? Yes!

After speaking with several museum curators in the Czech Republic about Tango Glass, it quickly became apparent that almost every Bohemian glass manufacturer of luxury glass made Tango Glass.  It was fashionable, and more importantly to the glass makers, it was profitable.   It’s debatable as to which glassworks first produced tango glass, but for the sake of this article, it will only depict, and discuss Harrach Tango Glass.

One great thing about the Harrach Museum and its depository, which is on the grounds of the Harrach Glassworks (now Novosad & Son), is that these pieces have resided there since they were produced there.  The sole purpose of this article is to document examples of Harrach Tango Glass.

The designers at Harrach were always known for being imaginative, but these Tango Glass animals are over the top!   I was able to find the original sales photograph, and many of the matching items.

These liquor sets may not be Tango in the purest sense, but they certainly  adhered to the deco Tango theme.

Harrach Tango Glass? Yes! — 3 Comments

  1. I was floored when I saw all the Harrach Tango in the museums there. I had forgotten it until now but it really is an area worth researching more with all the interest in this kind of glass. I love the dragons.
