Glassworks in Jarkovice

There used to be a glass factory here in the year 1557. Its glass master at that time was Mr. Václav. The date of its opening is unknown. It was in full operation still in 1572 when there were three relatives, all glass makers working in here – Christoph (having worked in Jarkovice for more than 8 years), Mathias and Wenzl. They were questioned for illegal hunting of bear in bordering forests. The glassworks was probably closed down before the Thirty Years´ War or at its beginning. Similarly to other glassworks of that era, it was probably producing glassbead. Written by PhDr. Jitka Lněničková
