GENUINE HAND-CUT CRYSTAL ONLY

crystal glass cutting

All BrenndeL's crystal glass is made, blown, cut and finished by hand. We take great pride in the 130 year long artisanal traditions and the over generations passed-on experience of our foundry.

ALWAYS HIGH-END 24% PbO QUALITY

molten crystal glass in foundry

Crystal is made with Lead Oxide (PbO) which makes the glass stronger and heavier for cutting and shaping. One can only call crystal of "high quality" if it contains at least 24% PbO. All of BrenndeL's crystal contains at least 24% PbO. We stand for quality and guarantee only the best possible finish.

CERTIFIED AS EXCLUSIVE CRYSTAL

golden Brenndel Crystal logo

In the European Union, only the most exclusive high quality crystal can have a round golden sticker on it. Lower quality crystal can only use square and triangular stickers. All of BrenndeL's crystal items are certified "Exclusive Quality" and have a round golden sticker on the foot of the item.

How to recognize quality crystal?

1. THICKNESS

It takes a great deal of experience for a glass blower to blow crystal very thin and consistent throughout. Check the thickness of the glass.

3. SOFT EDGES

Examine the cuts on the crystal item. Normal glass has often sharp cuts, while crystal has smooth, rounded cuts.

How to recognize quality crystal?

2. WEIGHT

High quality crystal contains at least 24% lead oxide (PbO), which is a fairly heavy and relatively expensive ingredient. Cheap crystal uses less than 24% and will therefor feel lighter than high quality crystal. You can weigh 2 glasses of roughly the same size to see which one is heaviest. This might be an indication of quality.

4. CRYSTAL CLEAR

Hold the item up to the light. Glass typically has a yellow or green tint, while crystal is completely clear. Crystal also produces more of a colourful prism effect than glass.

6. CERTIFICATION

Only high quality crystal of at least 24% PbO can have, by European law, a round golden sticker on it. Be wary of square or any other shape of stickers. All BrenndeL's crystal items are certified 24% PbO and you will always find our round gold sticker on the foot of the glass.

5. SOUND

Tap the item and take note of the sound it makes. Glass usually has more of a dull thud, and crystal has more of a high-pitched chime.

MAKE IT UNIQUE

BrenndeL crystal hunter set

Why choose a crystal set from a store, when you can have one custom made and tailored to your own desires? Why not have unique set which cannot be bought anywhere else in the world? We can tailor crystal precisely to your ideas.

CHOSE ANY SHAPE

BrenndeL crystal Ferrari

To start with we have an extensive range of shapes of glasses, vases, plates, throphees, novelties and more to choose from. Once you have found the shape you like, our sculpters can add your personal twists to it.

ADD COLOURS

BrenndeL coloured crystal glass

Almost any colour can be blended into the crystal glass. This is done by adding specific metals to the alloy. Adding cobalt for example results in blue shades. Adding gold results in reds and silver results into yellows, oranges and reds.

ENGRAVE YOUR OWN LOGO and MESSAGE

Using precision laser technology we can engrave any digital logo, shape or text on the surface of the glass. The laser makes microscopic shallow punctures onto the surface of the glass rendering it less transparant than the polished glass around it and thus your company logo, design or message becomes visible.

PERFECT BUSINESS GIFT

Show your business appreciation to your business partners with a crystal set engraved with your company logo or theirs. This is a perfect way to show your succesfull co operation and to celebrate future business.
