The Loetz Witwe Company was a well known Glass factory specialized in the Art Nouveau & Art Deco period, like Tiffany.

Michael Powolny (1871 - Vienna 1954) was an Austrian sculptor, ceramist, designer and teacher with Rosalia Rothhansl, Koloman Moser and Josef Hoffmann. Vally Wieselthier was one of his students.
He was born in Judenburg and trained in the industry in Znaim, and from 1894 to 1901 in the Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule. In 1906, with Bertold Löffler, he founded the Wiener Keramik workshop, which was part of the Wiener Werkstätte a year later. He worked for the manufacturing of Goldsheider ceramics.
