About Bohemia Crystal

Contact Information

In the year 1676, glassmaker George Ravenscroft Esquire discovered that by combining lead oxide to the already known required glass making composition, a more brilliant, soft and sparkling glass could be produced which lent itself to further processes, including cutting, engraving, decorating and etching.

Glassware Terms BLANK

The plain undecorated piece of glassware or crystal which will be further processed to be decorated, engraved, cut and polished.

BLOWN GLASS

Glass forced into shape by air-pressure, either by mouth blowing or machine blowing. This can be done with or without the use of a mould.

CRYSTAL

A much abused term which in the trade, simply refers to a clear colourless glass. The general materials used to produce crystal are fine silica sand, potash, and cullet (broken pieces of glass which are essential for the batch mixture). Other materials can be added to the basic batch mixture, such as oxides, i.e. lead oxide, gold oxide, barium, etc.

CRYSTALLITE

This is glassware which achieves the brilliance similar to lead crystal through the use of alternative minerals. It allows the glass to be more clear and brilliant as well as allow some forms of cutting and etching. Crystallite does not have a lead content.

LEAD CRYSTAL

When lead oxide is added to the basic glass mixture, “lead crystal” is produced. The amount of lead oxide added, determines the classification of the crystal, as well as the strength and malleability of the crystal. It also enhances the brilliance and clarity of the glass. Semi-lead crystal (crystalline) contains approximately 8-10% lead oxide, while the term “full lead crystal” is generally conceded to contain a minimum of 24% lead oxide. Lead oxide was initially introduced into crystal by the English approximately 250 years ago, due to the fact that it has a low melting temperature (1000- 2000 degrees Celsius) and it also adds brilliance to the product when cut.

50

It should also be noted that the most important reason for using lead oxide, is to soften the glass and, therefore, facilitate cutting and engraving on the item as a means of decoration. There are obviously disadvantages of having a softer glass product, i.e. it is more unstable during temperature changes; if softer, then it tends to chip or scratch much more easily.

BARIUM GLASS

When barium oxide is added to the basic glass mixture, the result is a product of superior clarity, strength and resiliency. Barium glass is primarily used in the production of those stemware lines which have a long, slender stem, or relatively thin-wall bowls.

CUTTING, ENGRAVING AND ETCHING

Cutting, engraving or etching on glass or crystal are three completely separate techniques of decorating glassware. The easiest way to distinguish between the three techniques is that cutting is a “wet process”, while engraving and etching are relatively “dry processes”. A diamond-carborundum wheel is used for cutting glass crystal and a continuous stream of water during the cutting process ensures the tiny glass particles are removed. Engraving is done generally with the use of a small copper wheel which produces a “shallow cutting” into the surface of the product. A small amount of abrasive fluid (not water) is used in order for the wheel to move more smoothly over the surface and scratch the design into the piece. Etching can be done with a laser or acid process.

COLOURED CRYSTAL

Colour is introduced into the glass by the addition of various oxides to the basic batch mixture. Gold oxide (as well as chrome oxide) is used to produce the ruby colour, this is the reason why ruby glass is generally more expensive. Iron oxide produces a green colour,

cobalt oxide produces blue glass and the addition of uranium oxide will produce an amber or yellow colour. It should be noted that generally, colour is found in non-lead crystal products, but may also be used in glass which covers full lead crystal.

MOULDS

Both wooden and cast iron moulds are used in the production of crystal/glass products. Although, the wooden moulds are produced from hardwoods (Cherry and Beechwood), they must be replaced more often as they burn-out after time despite being immersed in water.

PRESSED AND OVER CUT

This refers to an item, generally produced in lead crystal, that has had initial base cuts pressed using a mould. The piece, however, must be finished with fine hand-cutting by a master cutter in the same manner as a completely mouth blown item.

PANTOGRAPH

This is a technique in which a clear glass is dipped and covered in a mixture of paraffin and bees wax. Then the glass is placed on a machine which has four needles surrounding the glass. An operator traces a stencil which is hooked to the machine and wherever the operator traced, so too, do the four needles and thus they remove the wax leaving a design. The glass is then taken and placed in an acid solution for anywhere from 7 to 40 minutes depending on the size of the piece and acid concentration. In this process only the areas uncovered by wax are eaten away (the design area) and the wax is removed later by hot water to be reused.

GUILLOCHE

This is an identical procedure to pantograph, but there is only one needle used, producing simple geometric patterns which are continuous.


Care for your Crystal Full lead crystal is “softer” than regular glass, and it will scratch, so it should be stored where it will not touch other pieces. We recommend that you protect your investment with the proper care. Taking the below precautions is worth it!

• Do not store glasses upside down as this may cause stress

FAQ Is it normal for high quality crystal products to contain flaws?

Is it advisable to store spirits in decanters?

The creation of perfect unflawed crystal can only be achieved in assembly line products. When the manufacturing depends on age old methods combined with the skill and artistry of an individual craftsmen there can be slight variations in crystal products but this is actually a confirmation of the fine crafting of the product and not an indication of poor craftsmanship.

Decanters are not storage vessels, they are intended for ‘decanting’ only in preparation of serving. Over time alcohol stored in a crystal decanter will strip the crystal surface, resulting in the crystal appearing ‘cloudy’.

Are bubbles or seeds fault in the glass? Bubbles or seeds are often characteristics of handmade glass and crystal. Gases form the bubble when chemicals are united in the fusing or melting of the raw ingredients. As long as they are not on the rim or have broken through the surface, they do not affect the quality or the beauty of the glass.

How can I remove stains from a crystal decanter or a vase? It is very easy to remove stains from a crystal decanter or vase by combining a handful of uncooked rice in a solution of lemon juice or vinegar and warm water and swirling the mixture around to remove residue. For tougher stains we suggest trying warm water with a denture-cleaning tablet, allowing it to soak before being thoroughly rinsed.

Are lines in crystal a flaw? A line or “cord” is an almost invisible difference in density in the glass, which occurs during the fusing of the molten crystal. It is the natural outcome of the hand-making process and is not considered a flaw. Although it is visible when the glass is empty because it refracts the light, once the glass is filled the light is refracted at a different angle and it becomes invisible.

Choosing the Right Glass High Alcohol Content/ Hard Liquor

Carbonated/ Sparkling Drinks

Alcohol with a featured Aroma and Taste

A glass that is a smaller size is recommended to allow the alcohol to be sipped gradually.

Tall, more narrow stemware is preferred as it enables the bubbles to travel mildly and aesthetically. An exception is beer, which is normally served in a large glass such as a beer mug.

For alcohol with a distinctive aroma, such as wine, a rounder bowl and a slightly narrowed mouth is desired which allows the flavour to keep longer in the glass.

Major Glass Shapes and Uses Liqueur Glass The small shape is designed for the appreciation of the taste of straight liqueurs. Also used for Apéritifs . and Sakes.

Pilsner Glass A traditional glass for serving beer as it enhances aromatic volatiles, showcases the appearance and allows room for the foamy head to sit atop the beer.

Wine Glass Various shapes are available to compliment different genres of wine. Generally, red wine works well with larger glasses and white wine works well with a smaller sized glass.

Goblet A medium to large stemmed glass mainly for serving water. A typical goblet has a volume between 240ml and 360ml. Goblets can also be used for serving beer or juice.

52

Sherry Glass Sherry is a Spanish fortified wine that is blended with brandy. Typical ABV: 16% – 20%. Small stemware of around 75ml is a popular choice.

Champagne Saucer A shallow, broad bowled champagne saucer is commonly used at parties and wedding receptions. It can also be used for soft drinks and certain cocktails.

Old Fashioned Tumbler A short cylindrical tumbler used for serving whisky and other short drinks with ice cubes “on the rocks”.

Mug Large beer mugs, as the name suggests, are traditionally used for serving beer. Smaller glass mugs are used for coffee, tea and are perfect for shochu as well.

Cocktail Glass A standard cocktail glass with a cone-shaped bowl. Many adventurous designs and sizes are also available to accommodate the ever expanding cocktail repertoire.

Champagne Flute Champagne flutes are characterised by a long stem with a tall, narrow bowl on top. The narrow design allows the bubbles to travel aesthetically, giving a pleasant appeal.

Brandy Glass The large tulip-shaped glass with a slightly narrowed mouth is designed to keep the aroma of the spirit. Serving volume is 30ml for maximum enjoyment.

High Ball Tumbler Tumblers are the most common form of glass drinkware. They can be used for all genres of beverages. Size ranges from 180ml to over 300ml.


Wine Glass Guide White Wine Glass White wine is generally served cold. Compared with a red wine glass, white wine glasses are usually smaller. This allows the wine to be chilled for longer, to remain crisp and clean in flavour and to keep the aroma from escaping.

Red Wine Glass Red wine is very diverse and the characteristics of each type of red wine are subtly different. For red wines with a complex taste and aroma, wine glasses with a bigger bowl are used in order to bring out the flavour.

Bordeaux Glass

Burgundy Glass

Glasses with a tall and broad bowl are usually chosen to bring out the rich, tannin and dense aroma of Bordeaux wine, the prestigious aged wine originated from the French region of the same name.

This glass style is designed to bring out the supple and elegant taste of Burgundy wine. Like Bordeaux, this region specific French wine is prestigious. The wide, broad shape of the glass is designed to accumulate the fruity aroma in the bowl and accentuate the scent and tartness of the wine.

Tasting Glass A tasting glass is used for tasting wine, whisky and brandy. The ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) has a specific standard (ISO 3591) for wine tasting glasses. These glasses must adhere to specific guidelines with glass shape, size and lead content.

Champagne Glass Champagne flutes are characterised by a long stem with a tall narrow bowl on top. The flute design allows the bubbles to travel aesthetically, giving a pleasant visual appeal. Shallow, broad bowled champagne saucers are another common glass that is popular for parties and weddings.

Tips for Washing Glassware Read the dishwasher manual carefully

Choose a dishwasher with a gradual temperature change function

Special precautions and way of operation vary with all manufacturers and dishwasher models. Read the operation manual that comes with each dishwasher carefully. Consult the manufacturer’s customer centre if you should require further information.

Choose a dishwasher model that comes with a gradual temperature change function that protects glassware from a dramatic rise or drop in temperature. Avoid rinsing warm glassware with cold water.

Chipped or scratched glassware

Do not wash glassware that has metallic embossing or lustering in a dishwasher

Chipped and scratched glassware is prone to breakage by physical and thermal shock.

DO NOT wash lead crystal glassware in a dishwasher

Thermal shock (i.e. abrupt temperature change) and alkaline dish soap from the dishwasher could cause the lead crystal to break or corrode (become cloudy). Do not wash lead crystal in a dishwasher at any time if you wish to maintain the fine lustre of the product.

Washing glassware with gold/platinum colour embossing or lustering might lead to discolouring of the print.

Cool down the glassware before reusing

Do not use the glassware while is still warm after washing. Abrupt temperature change (especially from high to low temperatures, such as adding ice to a warm glass), may cause the glass to break. Wait until the glassware reaches room temperature.

Please note: glassware retains the best brilliance if hand washed.

Visual Merchandising Visual Merchandising is arranging merchandise assortments and creating visual displays within a store to improve the presentation and layout and to increase traffic and sales. Visual impact is a huge component of retail merchandising and customers entering a store are greatly influenced by the visual information they gather in the first split second. In today’s ultra competitive market place it is of paramount importance that merchandisers understand the basics of visual merchandising.

Display sale products in a creative way

When building a product display, look for products that are natural add-ons to the main product featured.

Use accent lighting to feature products

Customers are drawn to light. Lighting can make products shine and bring colours to life and accent lighting creates visual interest for shoppers, and places products in their sights.

Change Displays Regularly

Graphics and Signage

Signs can be used to educate customers about products for sale, announce special promotions or to direct traffic flow through your store. A significant percentage of sales are generated by in-store signage, displays and events; its impact far outweighs any other type of promotional or marketing campaign. Signage is the “silent salesperson” for the retailer and must communicate your store image. Professionalism is everything in your store and the same holds true with your signage. Avoid handwritten signs at all costs. Make your signs short and sweet as you have five seconds or less to tell the customer what you want them to know. Only display positive signs about your policies.

Seducing the Senses

Customers want to see new and different products. There is an aspect of entertainment and education that customers appreciate when the store changes its displays.

The experience of visiting a store should be comfortable, rich and have impact. Whether it is music, product displays, lighting or climate control, everything in the store can impact the customer’s shopping experience.

Colour Matters

Visual Balance

Consider grouping themed products together for powerful visual messages. Theme merchandising is a good way to communicate seasonal activities or other information and themes connect customers to projects or activities.

It is important to remember that strong displays have visual balance. Dark colours appear heavier than light ones and large objects appear heavier than small ones. Position larger, darker items near the bottom of a display, with lighter items at the top to avoid a top heavy appearance. Placing too many items or heavy looking items on one side will also make your display appear unbalanced. Ensure that there is a left to right balance emanating from the focal point of the display.

Product Positioning

Cross-Mix Merchandising

Colour can demand a shopper’s attention, evoke emotion and influence decisions.

Merchandising themes

Analyse the current customer traffic flow of your store and think of ways to encourage customers to look at products, with their attention focused where you would like it to be. Ensure that your best-selling products are given the most favourable display areas in your department ensuring your “hotspots” take full advantage of new products and display the newest and most colourful items in these spots, as they will command the attention of shoppers. Products should be organised in groupings; by item type, colour, or any other logical characteristic. Placing coordinating or complementary items near each other makes them more visible to the customer and makes shopping easier. Customers are prepared to hunt for high demand items, so position them in less valuable spaces.

Displaying a variety of seemingly unrelated products together can create a comprehensive visual story. This type of merchandising communicates breadth of product and educates the customer about merchandise they may be unaware that you carry. Cross-mixing merchandise within your store and can promote the look of a certain lifestyle for customers to buy into. It encourages customers to visualise how they would use an item and helps to confirm their decision to purchase an item. You can use larger items within your product lines as props for smaller items, and showcase impulse products with demand items. Be sure to place displays featuring cross-mixed products in high traffic areas. Keep cross-mixed visual merchandising displays sharp and to the point, as the average customer views a merchandise display for just two seconds! 55


Assess All Angles

After you have completed your display, step back and look at it from a variety of angles. Try to view it as a customer would. Remember that very few people will see it standing directly in front of it as most displays are approached from the side and seen from an angle. Observe the direction from which most customers approach the display and make sure that the best view of the display is the one that most people will see.

Ask yourself the following questions • Are your feature products appropriately placed? • Do you need to angle the display to the customer’s viewpoint? • Is signage visible and clear? • Does the arrangement appear balanced? • Does the display interest and attract the customer or does it overwhelm and confuse them? • Is the display bland and unremarkable? Bear in mind that ultimately the final barometer of a display’s worthiness is its ability to sell Bohemia Crystal products.

Additional Merchandising Tips and Checklist • To give yourself a more hands-on sense of how to display products, while you are shopping, pay attention to the variety of approaches taken by other stores. • Are all senses appropriately stimulated? • Is lighting effective? • Is all signage clear and professional? • Is merchandise presentation logically ordered and appealing? • Are high-margin products placed in high profile locations? • Are opportunities for add-on/impulse purchases maximised? • Are displays appropriate for your target customers? • Overall, is the store appearance professional?
