What Makes Bohemian Glass so Beautifully Special?

Hand Cut Bohemian Chrystal

Lace Cuts

The fame of Bohemian cut lead crystal is founded on the incredible creative ability of Czech glass-makers and cutters. Their skill, diligence, patience and perfect concentration are essential for the creation of their hand-made crystal products. The largest producer of Bohemian cut crystal is the Sklarny Bohemia Glass-works at Podebrady, which ranks among the best in the world.

Sklarny Bohemia Glass-works carry on the long tradition of lead crystal related with the trade mark BOHEMIA. The rich traditions of skilled manual work have found their reflection in today's wide range of decoration techniques, including various methods of painting, matting, engraving, etching and sand blasting. Fine patterns, both rich and simple, are skillfully applied on products designed for traditional formal dining and home decor.

Among typical Bohemian decorations are the lace cuts, which clearly define the Czech glass-cutting school. In this decoration, the sparkling glitter of 24% lead crystal displays the culture of artistic craftsmanship, handed down from generation to generation. Typical properties of lead crystal - its purity and a high index of light refraction - give their best effect on cut decorations being an art whose craftsmanship is present in Sklarny Bohemia offer to the utmost.

 

These products are excellent representatives of the feeling, precision and skill of manual work, which no machine can replace.

 

Bohemian high enamel represents a real heritage of past generations: the heritage of glass-maker's craftsmanship and distinguished taste. Glass decorated by hand painting is one of the oldest decorating techniques. A plastic effect is achieved by applying multiple enamel layers. Gradually laid enamel colors are fired on, which makes this technique more elaborate.

 

Presently a range of decorative glassware is offered in dark blue, green or ruby, to which fine enamel colors are sensitively added. In spite of their historicist character, these articles integrate well with both classic and modern home interiors.
