Poschinger Art Glass
This page provides basic information about Art Glass made by the Freiherr von Poschinger Glasmanufaktur of Frauenau, Germany. This company has been in business since 1568 and has been continuously owned and operated by the family of the Baron von Poschinger. Their glass was produced at several locations within Bavaria, the most notable being Buchenau and Frauenau.

It is typicalized by elegantly styled vases and bowls which have a deep purple to almost black irridescence, and have elegant enamelling. Two examples of these are the floral vases below which were decorated by Betty Heldrich:
