Bohemian glass, famous for its beauty and colour, has been in production since the 13th century, aided by the abundant natural resources found in the countryside, including potash which combined with chalk created a clear glass, wood to fire the kilns, as well as limestone and silica. Bohemia became part of Czechoslovakia from 1918, and from 1993, part of the Czech Republic, although the word'Bohemia' and variations on it continued in use in labeling glass.
By the mid 18th century Bohemian glass dominated world production and in the 19th century Bohemia became the centre for production of new types of coloured glass.
