HISTORY OF CZECH CRYSTAL:
The Preciosa brand name was first registered in Bohemia in 1915, but the history of glassmaking in Jablonec region has been traced back to the 14th century.
In 1711 the Fisher brothers brought the secrets of crystal cutting and polishing to North Bohemia. In 1724, the first factory specialising in the manufacturing and export of crystal chandeliers was established in Prechen near KamenickÀù `enov. Bohemian chandeliers were ordered for the Royal Courts – Versailles and Fontainebleu palaces of Louis XV, Sultan Osman III of the Ottoman Empire, and Empress Elizabeth of Russia. In 1945 several makers merged, forming the Preciosa company, one being the original maker from 1724!
These faceted beads add sparkle at a fraction of the price of lead crystals.
