The excellence of Bohemia and Silesian work was unsurpassed; some of its portraiture was superb and closely akin to the earlier Nuremberg work, but the general characteristic was a superfluity of conventional patterns, enclosing armorials or vignette portraits with a wealth or intricate detail and patient workmanship. Its execution was o doubt facilitated by the hard metal of the soda-lime glasses used.
