A cameo portrait of Bismarck by Fridolin Kretschmann


Glass historians regard Bohemian-born Fridolin Kretschmann as one of the most talented engravers of the late 19th century. From the mid-1880s to the early 1890s he lived in Duncombe Street, which also became home to a small clique of Bohemian glassmakers. Kretschmann worked primarily on cameo glass. One example of his work, a cameo portrait of Bismarck, is in the Broadfield House Glass Museum collection in Kingswinford
