The origins of the study of glassmaking in the Czech lands
were associated with archivists and historians who, in the
late 19th and early 20th centuries, gathered written sources
connected with this field of both economy and applied arts
that has played an important part since the Middle Ages.
The work of Franti.ek Mare., Christian Schirek, Anton Rzehak
and Erwin von Czihak laid the foundations built upon
by the future generations of researchers. In the 1930s they
were joined by art historians such as F. X. Ji.ik. However, the
study of glassmaking was also connected with museums and
art galleries, as well as private collections, which narrowed
down the discipline to selected items of high artistic and historical
value, true gems of their time. On the other hand,
archaeological research conducted in towns and aristocratic
residences yielded a large amount of glass from refuse pits,
filled.up wells and cellars. For medieval glass, these were
basically the only sources, which is why they soon attracted
the attention of archaeologists. The study of medieval glass
was pioneered by Dagmar Hejdova and Bo.ivoj Nechvatal in
the 1960s, with archaeologists Eva .erna, Franti.ek Fryda,
Rudolf Krajic, Pavel .ebesta and Bed.ich .tauber, as well as
Zdenka Himmelova (ő 2001) in Moravia, joining forces with
them later. In Slovakia, the beginnings of the study of medieval
and early modern age glass are associated with Klara
Furyova and Marta Janovi.kova who wrote an overview
of the state of research until the 1980s. 1) Significant contributions
also came from Jozef Ho..o (ő 2012), Bello Polla and
Veronika Placha, in collaboration with Bo.ivoj Nechvatal.
Glass from renaissance refuse pits was first brought to light
in 1963 by art historian Karel Hette., in his groundbreaking
work on the influence of Venetian glass on the Czech production,
and Dagmar Hejdova supplemented his study with
material from research into a glasshouses in Rejdice, near
Jablonec. Czech archaeologists involved in the gathering
of information included Olga Drahotova who prepared the
historical part of the publication History of Glassmaking in the
Czech Lands (2005) that summed up the existing information
from both published and unpublished sources from Bohemia,
Moravia and a part of Silesia.
