Our collection of antique glasses includes pieces from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The themes used to be floral or geometrical. These were always engraved by hand on the same glass normally by the diamond technique.
This technique was used by precious gemstones of the East. In Catalonia it arrived in the middle of this century. The diamond tip allows you to record the glass accurately. An incision is made in the glass, acting directly on the surface, which is tipped; therefore it can only be applied in crystals of a certain thickness. This art was adapting to the different types of glass of the moment.
On the other hand, we can hardly find color motifs, drawn by hand with paint on glass. In both cases, it can be appreciated that the trajectory is different if we compare with each other.
