Wikipedia is quoted as saying ~

*Bohemian glass, chiefly referred to as Bohemia crystal, is glass produced in the regions of Bohemia and Silesia, now parts of the Czech Republic. It has a centuries long history of being internationally recognised for its high quality, craftsmanship, beauty and often innovative designs. Hand-cut, engraved, blown and painted decorative glassware ranging from champagne flutes to enormous chandeliers, ornaments, figurines and other glass items are among the best known Czech exports and immensely popular as tourist souvenirs. The Czech Republic is home to numerous glass studios and schools attended by local and foreign students.*

Another brief article I inherited from a friend, describes Bohemian Glass in this short history ~

In the early 19th Century three gentleman chemists named Freiderich Egermann and the Counts Buquoy and Harrach found a way to create beautiful colored glass previously only found in Venice. Their discoveries eventually led to inexpensively produced fine quality colored glass at a price acceptable to the emerging middle classes known today as Bohemian Glass. By the 1860's a real industry was established of about 100 glass huts (factories) employing roughly 40,000 people. The well known colors of ruby (deep red), cranberry (lighter red), amber, cobalt (blue), green, violet and so on were hugely popular not just in the local market of Prague, Munich, Vienna and Berlin, but with tourists (many British) craving a souvenir. The industry obliged by supplying pieces with engraved views of spa towns and civic buildings. The other most popular type of engraving was of woodland scenes with stags, dogs, horses and huntsmen.
