The history of the BOHEMIA trademark is inseparably linked not only with the history of Czech glassmaking, but with the history of Czech crystal in general. From the very beginning, the outstanding features of the articles under this trademark were high quality and artistic value following the craftsmanship and skilfulness of glassmakers, technicians and designers of the glassworks, and it continues to be so.
The world renowned blue and gold symbol BOHEMIA CZECH REPUBLIC has a strong position in a great deal of countries. The unique tradition of lead crystal making masters connected with this trademark has been never interrupted and it is therefore highly regarded.
Glass has been present in the Czech countries from time immemorial. The glassworks in Poděbrady were then founded in the second half of the 19th century with the aim of continuing this tradition of renowned Czech glassmaking. After the World War II, the glassworks were magnificently modernized and in 1950, independent Poděbrady glassworks were established. The production of 18% lead crystal was gradually converted to a more noble 24%. Over the next 60 years, the glassworks had several owners, and the current modern era began in 2008 with the establishment of the joint-stock company Crystal BOHEMIA. In February 2020, the company in Poděbrady expanded to include glassworks in Světlá nad Sázavou and now both bear the common name Crystal BOHEMIA.
In recent years, we have significantly invested in modern technologies that enable efficient production and at the same time guarantee the stable and high quality of our products.
At present, we are one of the world's leading producers of lead and lead-free crystal and we are clearly the largest producer in the Czech Republic. The company has a rich history and extraordinary tradition, represented not only by a new visual style and logo based on the BOHEMIA trademark, but also by traditional trademarks.
