Title: About Bohemian Crystal

The glass industry has its roots in the Czech Republic and Slovak Republic, formerly Czechoslovakia, from the early 15th century. Local production throughout the country was characterized by a large number of small workshops that specialized in blowing, engraving, cutting, and painting of glass and crystal.

This time honored tradition projects into the creative abilities and imaginative skills of glass artists and cutters and thus also the limitless range of shapes and decorations they conjure up.

The art of glass blowing today has not significantly changed in 600 years.
The process begins with an artist gathering molten glass from furnace.
Then he blows the molten glass to desired size.
He then uses a wooden mold to shape the glass.
After he inspects the item, he places it in cooling oven for 48 hours.

After cooling, crystal pieces are hand-cut with hundreds of deep star patterns.
The artists use a wet revolving carborundum wheel.
Then the items are carefully polished.

The Czech and Slovak glass-cutting schools are noted for the abundance of rich and unique decorative elements combining various cutting techniques with mate fillings, the harmony of décor and shape, and state-of-the-art execution.

Our ancestors for many generations have enjoyed the beauty of crystal. Bohemian Crystal became the preferred glass of the world's ruling elite during the 17th and 18th centuries. Its quality remains high, and you can still enjoy reasonable prices.
