Premium Branded European Crystal Since 1548

All the way back in 1548, among the mountains of Northern Bohemia (referred to today as Crystal Valley), the very first glass kiln was used. A sparkling new industry was born.

Four hundred years later, in 1948, 25 independent glassmakers came together in the small town of Jablonec nad Nisou and Preciosa was born.
