VIENNA – When he talks about his work, the smile on Erwin Perzy III’s face grows wide. It’s obvious that he’s passionate about what he does. After all, this work has been part of his family since 1900.
That’s when Perzy’s grandfather, Erwin Perzy I, accidentally created the snow globe in Vienna.
Perzy I, who was only 24 years old at the time, specialized in designing and repairing medical tools. He liked experimenting and trying new designs, so when local doctors asked him for a better light in their operating rooms, he got to work.
