The heat of the ovens, the flying sparks, the intense red colour of the warm viscous material and the intensive teamwork between the glass-blowers is an unforgettable and breathtaking sight for everyone.
The creation of a crystal object not only looks extremely spectacular, but no-one can deny the traditional craftsmanship that is required.
The current Royal Leerdam Crystal (RLC) was founded in 1878 and received its royal designation in 1953. It works with extremely high-quality raw materials that give the Leerdam crystal its unique features: an exceptionally radiant effect on account of the material’s high refractive index, beautiful transparency and tone and a colour fastness comparable to that of precious stones. In addition, it is extremely suitable for grinding and engraving. These distinguishing features have resulted in considerable international esteem for Leerdam crystal.
