Several Bohemian glass engravers worked in Meissen and Dresden in October 1710. During the Ostermesse (Easter fair) held in may 1710, in Leipzig, these glass-engravers cut and carved; all the bérainesque decoration, monograms, coat-of-arms etc., on the client's demand, on Böttgersteinzeug. In 1712 ten glass-engravers worked in Bohemia for Meissen.
The difficult and expensive technique of Schliff und Schnittdekor was discontinued by 1714-1715, due to the discovery of Böttgerporzellan which ruined the demand for Böttgersteinzeug.
