Masterpieces of European glass manufacturers

From baroque opulence to modern minimalism, from mighty crystal glass goblets to delicate porcelain cups – our drinking glasses from Europe's most renowned manufactories silently radiate their magic over every table setting. Gift unique, one of a kind drinking glasses to colleagues, friends and family or shop complete drinkware collections for your home bar.

Crystal glass – the glass artist’s crystal canvas

The majority of our selection of glassware is made of crystal glass. Unlike normal glass, it is made with valuable alkaline earth metals as additives. These make the glass remarkably colourless, brilliant and clear in any thickness. Only when these criteria are met can the glass be coloured, shaped, cut, polished, engraved and decorated with gold and platin by masterful craftsmen.

The historical heavyweight – lead crystal glass

Lead crystal glass, commonly referred to simply as crystal, is made with lead oxide as additive. For centuries, it used to be considered as the golden standard for crystal glass in Europe. That’s because the surprisingly heavy lead glass boasts an unsurpassed brilliance when cut. Also, lead crystal glass has a unique sound – even just a gentle tap of the finger will elicit clear, bright and sustained tones from the glass.

Glassware made of high-quality lead crystal is generally considered safe to use for adults. To ensure that your precious crystal drinkware will last for generations, it is still important to handle it with care. It needs to be cleaned by hand; filling it with food or drink containing vinegar and stacking it should be avoided. It’s worth the effort as well-kept crystal pieces could one day become coveted collector's items.

The new classic – lead-free crystal glass

Many manufactories have long specialized in crystal glass without lead; Czech manufactories in particular are proud of their modern, lead-free version of Bohemian crystal glass. Those types of crystal glass do not quite achieve the brilliance of genuine lead crystal, but they do offer an even more pronounced play of colour - and can be used as a utility object without any hesitation.

Each handcrafted piece is unique

Whether from France, the Czech Republic or Germany, Europe's glass manufacturers have been creating objects of artistic and cultural significance for centuries. Only the best and most innovative artisans who dare push the boundaries of their craft have been able to survive to this day. Their claim: perfection down to the last detail.

In France, the Cristallerie Saint-Louis, founded as early as the 16th century, and the haute couture forge Lalique have been producing breath-taking items of beauty. In the Czech Republic, Moser and Artel inspire new talent with an incredible play of colours; in Germany, Theresienthal and Rotter Glas have been attracting international attention.

Radiant colours, artistic cuts, hand-engraved motifs, unique shapes and luxurious ornaments made of gold and platinum – handcrafted glassware sets exciting contrasts to cutlery and tableware. Our carefully curated selection will fascinate and enchant your guests at any event.

A new lifestyle – champagne goblets made of porcelain

From heavy and clear to light and opaque – in addition to glassware in all shapes and sizes, you will also find other kinds of drinkware like champagne tumblers made of porcelain. The lavishly decorated goblets feel amazing to hold and will keep your champagne cool for a long time. Their varied designs ensure that no cups will get mixed up at your next big celebration. In the 24-carat gold-plated goblets, the contents shine like liquid gold - a playful luxury experience.
