The Egermann company is located in the picturesque town of Nový Bor, in a beautiful area of northern Bohemia in the Czech Republic. The name of the company comes from the famous glass technologist and glass painter, Friedrich Egermann, born in 1777 in northern Bohemia, who learned painting as an apprentice in Meissen, Germany. Meissen was the center of porcelain at that time. He learned various production processes and how to paint on porcelain. After returning to Nový Bor, he devoted himself to painting on glass and devoted his time to experimenting with new decorating techniques. The Egermann company, which dates back to the early 18th century, still specializes in hand-decorated glass. Egermann's main and most famous invention from 1832 is the process of "red dyeing", where the dark ruby red dyeing on the surface of each piece is decorated with baroque patterns using grinding and engraving techniques. Egermann is the world's leading manufacturer of the "red dyeing" process. Egermann specializes exclusively in the production of hand-decorated glass products. Glass goods in Egermann are still produced by traditional Czech techniques. Each vase, glass or bowl is therefore a unique product in the tradition of Grand Master Friedrich Egermann.
