The Cultivation of Chandeliers. Since 1724
The Cultivation of Chandeliers exhibit represents Preciosa’s dedication to bringing its glass-making heritage to a diverse audience and ‘cultivating’ new methods and designs. Using contemporary designers and modern techniques, Bohemian crystal is reinterpreted in new breathtaking installations.
The Flagship Store
At the Flagship Store in Prague, Preciosa honours both the brand and the tradition of Bohemian crystal chandeliers. Located in an old city palace, the chandeliers are presented in a double-height gallery, with further displays of tableware, glasses, and crystal beads, giving the exquisite crystal a home of fitting magnificence.
