Arts and crafts from Edelserpentin from the past century
The first person to work with Edelserpentin was the expert turner Josef Höfer in 1860,
who was a direct ancestor from the Potsch family. The original turning lathe and workshop shows, how hard this work have been.
The highlight of this collection is a mosaic vase composed of more than 500 differently translucent pieces of Edelserpentin. This vase was awarded gold at the World Exposition in Brussels in 1958.
You will see unique Edelserpentin-exhibits from different Edelserpentin-grinderies
from the town Bernstein.
The rocks can be found in light to dark-green shades and even nowadays they are still processed on the turning lathe. The creations of Otto Potsch and his descendants Andreas and Niko make the collection complete.
