Information on the term "Goetheglas"
Important note: "Restoration glass" and "restauro®" are protected by us.
The term "Goetheglas" is not protected - so pay attention to the addition "mouth-blown" (!) if you value the authentic character of handcrafted glasses! Real Goethe glasses are handmade and mouth-blown. "Goethe glass is an old hand-blown window glass (so-called cylinder glass / cylinder stretch glass). It can show winds and individual bubbles. Used for the restoration of historical glazing. The name comes from the old window glazing of the Goethe House in Frankfurt."

Historical window glass and monument protection
The preservation of historically valuable buildings is very important today. The window and its effect have a significant influence on the appearance of a building facade. From the point of view of monument preservation, the restoration with the window glass glass manufactured according to the original process is the only safe and correct way! On the other hand, historicizing replacement products from machine production often very clearly disfigure an old facade! The glass, manufactured according to the original mouth-blown process, blends inconspicuously and easily into the facade. Substitute products from industrial production, on the other hand, are annoyingly eye-catching due to the regularity of the movement! The repair and maintenance of historical window constructions requires high technical skills and knowledge.
