A Drinking Glasses from our collection of "PANELLED CRYSTAL", where the combination of hand-blown crystal with an additional colour layer, hand-cut, real gold decoration and fine enamels creates a unique exclusive look. This unique art glass decorating technique is maintained by Egermann, see text below. More
The panelled crystal is made by very demanding and costly decorative technology. After the first production step (glass blowing) is this semi-product overlaid with another layer of colour glass mass. The major part of the colour layer is then cut off (the colour glass forms so called "BEVELS") and the crystal surfaces are polished with polishing wheels. Then is this product decorated by hand using the real gold. The combination of gold and fine decoration using enamel paints adds to the products an exclusive appearance. Also the surfaces covered by staining can be decorated by engraving.
This extremely demanding production process makes the panelled glass very unique and exceptional in the entire portfolio of decorated crystal.
