Bohemian crystal bears a legend of its own. The story begins inside a diligently constructed furnace, where a concoction of mindfully selected raw materials is forged into one. The four classic elements – fire, water, earth and air – encounter and coalesce in 1,200 degrees Celsius of fervent, glowing liquid. Born is a new pristine element – crystal. This is the making of fine crystal, and it is a craft premised on uncompromised loyalty to the past. The atmospheric ambience of the glassworks of Bohemia, rife with its hot water vapors and the sweet scents of fresh oak wood permeating the factory, is what instills in Bohemian crystal its distinct spirit at the very threshold of its creation.
