Theresienthal’s is the luxury glassware brand from Bavaria, Germany. Its prestige has endured because of a true commitment to craftsmanship.
It was founded in 1836 as Royally Bavarian Privileged Glassworks Theresienthal by Franz and Wilhelm Steigerwald. In 1869 - 1886 - King Ludwig II builds his famous castles and palaces and orders a lot of glass from Theresienthal. Ever since, Theresienthal was a preferred supplier for Royal Families and appreciated partner for the best department stores. A key client in the late 19th century was the Tsar of Russia. Theresienthal still produces some of the series, which he had ordered. Theresienthal retained a carefully developed the ancient skill and the exquisite designs. The company still creates glasses that delighted Kings and Tsars and still apply the proven techniques: every item that bears Theresienthal crown was fully hand made in our site by craftsmen.
Glassblowers, cutters, engravers, painters and other craftsmen have been working in Theresienthal since 1836. These craftsmen have accumulated the skill and experience that is essential for the making of exclusive crystal ware. Many of these craftsmen have worked in Theresienthal for decades and are sometimes the fourth or fifth generation of artisans. Theresienthal has always relied exclusively on its own craftsmen and every single item is hand-made. The process starts with the creation of a wooden mould. This is carried out by a master wood-turner. The liquid glass is blown into this mould to form the cup. A strand of moulten glass is then formed into the stem which is attached to the cup before the stem solidifies. Using a similar method, some glasses are further adorned with ornaments similarly made by hand. The glasses are then cut, engraved or painted, depending on the design and finally hand-polished. All these steps are done exclusively at Theresienthal site in Bavaria, meaning that Theresienthal has full control of the entire manufacturing process. This way Theresienthal can guaranty the quality and timely delivery.
The new collection crafted by designers Peter Kempe and Thomas Kuball is strongly inspired by Theresienthal’s great epochs and creative phases. Rediscovered shapes from the periods of Historicism, Art Nouveau, and New Objectivity are being carefully adapted to a modern sense of style timeless crystal glass design never loses its lustre.
