Traditional region

Českolipsko Region

The glassmaking tradition in Lužické Mountains started in the 13th already, and counts. A manufactory for hand cut mirrors was founded by Kinský on his own expenses in the 18th century and set a course in the European trading with mirrors. In the glass works in Juliovka, there were first three chandeliers up the north from Alps made shortly after 1687. The world fame of so-called crystal trimming chandeliers was documented in the 18th century already and lasts till these days in the form of design lights and lamps made for whole world.
