'Desná' Decorative Glass

Decorative glass products are distinguished by high quality, traditional manual work and modern glassmaking technology.

They can be divided into several product groups. Small-scale decorative and utility items include flacons, vases and automobile radiator figureheads, as well as drinking glasses, religious items and office glassware.

The extensive collection of artistic decorative glass and smooth cut glass has a long history which follows on from the pre-war tradition of unique products made by the Jablonec companies of Heinrich Hoffmann and Curt Schlevogt. This especially applies to the "Ingrid" collection, which has been created with contributions from artists of European and international renown.

Contemporary decorative glass from "Desná", which proudly bears the product name Desná Since 1847®, is not only based on the original "Ingrid" collection, but also on designs from other local pre-war companies, as well as those of post-war and contemporary designers.
