Basket Thistle, cased lead crystal 24% PbO. The basket is 100% hand made by a renowned bohemian crystal manufacturer. Various colors are available.
This high-quality lead crystal basket receives its coating with a special overlaid technique. During production the transparent glass is coated with the colored, liquid glass and brought into form. This manufacturing process is on the top of handmade production's possibilities and only the best and most skillful glassmakers are able to make it. Also the fact that no method allowing a machine production has been invented yet represents a proof of its manufacturing demandingness. Each product requires many hours of highly experienced and skillful glassmakers handwork. The colorful and unique glass structures originate by partly cutting the colored outer surface after cooling. Incident light onto the glass gets refracted into rainbow like colors, which in turn makes the glass glitter wonderfully.
