Product Description

The largest producer of Bohemian cut crystal is the Sklarry Bohemia Glassworks at Podebrady, which ranks among the best in the world. Lead crystal is made from glass that has been treated with lead oxide and hand or machine cut to make facets. This gives the glass a higher index of refraction and creates an attractive sparkling that is prized throughout the world. Refraction is the bending of light and sound waves.
