Susanne Netzer dates the production of fine cut glass in Brandenburg to after 1678. Most glass decorators were active in Potsdam and Berlin. Their products had to be presented to the Prince Elector after production and only the pieces which he did not request for his own use were allowed to be sold. The first shop in Berlin to sell Potsdam glass was located on Friedrichswerder in the storerooms of the old Berlin packing warehouse. There was also a shop on Mühlendamm in Breite Strasse. Apart from these two locations, products from the Potsdam glass blowing workshop could only be purchased at the trade fairs in Leipzig and Frankfurt an der Oder.
