A few years ago we were fortunate enough to acquire the entire contents of a former button making factory in the Czech Republic. Included in the lot were almost 1000kg of antique glass cane. This cane dates from the 1900's to the 1940's and has the most remarkable pure colors with amethyst purple, Emerald green, Uranium, Ruby red, Amber, Cobalt blue and Sapphire blue to name a few. 

After sitting on the cane for a long time, we found an incredibly talented lampwork glass specialist in The Czech Republic who knew how to work with old glass. Antique cane is a unknown entity and it requires someone with years of experience to work with it. Our inspiration came from the almost lost art of making miniature animals, birds and fish which date from the 1900's to the 1930's.
