Bohemia Crystal, also referred to as Bohemian glass, is produced in the regions of Bohemia and Silesia, parts of the Czech Republic. It has a centuries long history of being internationally recognised for its high quality, craftsmanship, beauty and often innovative designs. The Czech Republic is home to numerous glass studios and schools attended by local and foreign students.
Crystal vs. glass
The meaning of crystal versus glass changes according to the country. The word “crystal” means, in most of the Western world, the presence of lead. In the European Union, the labeling of “crystal” products is regulated by Council Directive 69/493/EEC, which defines four categories, depending on the chemical composition and properties of the material. Only glass products containing at least 24% lead oxide may be referred to as “lead crystal”. Products with less lead oxide, or glass products with other metal oxides used in place of lead oxide, must be labeled “crystallin” or “crystal glass”. In the United States it is the opposite – glass is defined as “crystal” if it contains only 1% lead. In the Czech Republic, the term “crystal” is used for any exquisite, high quality glass. Leaded crystal means crystal containing more than 24% lead oxide.
