Illuminated. Glass Art from the Collection
The Gmünder Museum boasts a remarkable glass collection. The spectrum ranges from baroque cut glassware with flowery or leafy ornaments via Biedermeier glassware up to the studio glass of the present day. A special feature is the set of glasses from the Wiesenthal and Josephine Glassworks, both of which were re-established in Schwäbisch Gmünd after the Second World War. Since the 1960s, the Wiesenthal Glassworks, in particular, developed under Klaus Breit (1926-2004) to become one of the leading glass manufactories in West Germany with its own distinctive profile and design.
