The original Carl Goldberg company boasted not only a wide product range, but also of its extremely extensive range of decorative techniques. The company’s founder, Carl Goldberg, was a very capable painter. This was naturally reflected in the company’s range of products, in which painted glass predominates. The company had plain glassware decorated with traditional painting techniques – painting, high enamelling, gilding, silvering, pen-and-ink drawing, sandblasting or, less common today, glazing, iridisation, etching, electroplating and aerography.
The inspiration by high enamelling technique is used, for example, in the “Rose” collection by designer František Jungvirt. The uniqueness of this collection lies in the development of ornamentation. The aim was to create flowers in as high relief as possible above the surface, according to the original Goldberg designs from the first third of the 20th century. However, with current knowledge and procedures, a similar effect can no longer be achieved with the help of paints alone. In the case of the flowers themselves, the high enamel was replaced by hotsculpted flowers; small details were then supplemented by painting and gilding.
