This is the group of crystal which is most demanding in terms of skills, it asks for most refined craftsmanship and it gives most precious pieces of art in return. Handcut lead crystal at best. Each item is manufactured by one master from the beginning to the end. This has been the reason for the success of handcut lead crystal throughout 150 years.
The Paris Cut of lead crystal
Of course our favourite style of cutting lead crystal, the Paris Cut, is applied masterly by hand with stonediscs by our ladies and gentlemen experts. The characteristics are a strict order of a few complicated geometric patterns. This style has become the symbol of a blossoming epoque in music, painting and literature, of research, 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 this lifestyle can be seen from the precision, the fragile details and the pomp of the crystal dishes and crystal plates.
