The crys­tal ash­trays are hand­cut lead crys­tal. Even in times of no smok­ing they are pop­u­lar means for dec­o­ra­tion and stor­age, just like small crys­tal dish­es or crys­tal plates.

The Paris Cut of lead crystal

We pre­fer the Paris Cut, mas­ter­ly cut by hand with stonediscs by our ladies and gen­tle­men experts. The char­ac­ter­is­tics are a strict order of a few com­pli­cat­ed geo­met­ric pat­terns. The cut has become the sym­bol of a blos­som­ing epoque in music, paint­ing and lit­er­a­ture, of research, devel­op­ment, engi­neer­ing and progress, an extra­or­di­nar­i­ly boom­ing phase in Euro­pean his­to­ry by mid of the 19th cen­tu­ry. The grow­ing and wealthy mid­dle class gained more influ­ence on pol­i­tics, econ­my and lifestyle. And so Bohemi­an Lead Crys­tal became pop­u­lar and wide­ly spread.

Variaty of dimensions and shapes

We only have round crstal ash­trays in Paris Cut. They are avail­able as small crys­tal ash­trays with a diam­e­ter 12cm – for ladies. In con­trast with big crys­tal ash­trays with 20,5cm diam­e­ter – for clubs and offices. Even in times of ban­ning tobac­co our crys­tal ash­trays enjoy wide pop­u­lar­i­ty because of their beau­ty and elegance.

Highest level

Only top glass blow­ers and moulds are involved in mak­ing our blanks: no stamps, no auto­mat­ic machines – only human beings with their tal­ents and their stone discs. The raw mate­r­i­al is lead crys­tal with 24% PbO – this is our credo.
