The Lusatian Mountains (Czech: Lužické hory, German: Lausitzer Gebirge) are a mountain range of the Western Sudetes, located on the southeastern border of Germany with the Czech Republic

The tradition of glass making in the Lusatian Mountains is more than seven hundred years old. During its long history there were several periods when this quiet region in the north of Bohemia went down in the world history of this extraordinary craft. More serious and intensive research into the history of glass making in this region has been made from the early 1960’s by Václav Sacher from the Museum of Glass in Nový Bor. His activities were followed by young and middle-aged generations of researchers.
