Inside Bergdala museum of glass technology

At Bergdala museum of glass technology the visitor is encouraged to try all the machines in the collection. Most of them are heavy to handle and bear witness to the hard working life of the glassworks workers. You can read more about the machines on the museum’s website.

The horizontal pantograph can etch 24 glasses at the time. Every plate, where the glasses are placed, is surrounded by six needles. Through a system of trolleys, wheels and moving beams they are connected to the needle moved by the person operating the pantograph.
Pattern plates for pantograph. The pattern plates are considerably larger than the motif in question, making them easier to trace with a needle.
