Meet The Maker:
The Bavarian Forest has a 700-year heritage of glass production, making it a fitting home for Theresienthal, the crystal specialist with a similarly rich history. It was founded in 1836 by Franz and Wilhelm Steigerwald via a Royal Warrant of Appointment, and has graced many a castle and palace ever since – including those of the Russian Imperial Family and King Ludwig II. Today, the story continues to evolve with the help of master craftspeople, many of whom represent the fourth or fifth generation of their lineage. Collections are blown, shaped, cut, engraved, painted and polished entirely by hand and finished with fanciful details.
