Signs of authenticity of Czech and Bohemian glass

Czech and Bohemian glass is highly prized. These are beautiful, practical materials, and their products have a special charm due to their delicate workmanship and perfect design. Glass differs by region of origin. Bohemian is made in Bohemia, a region in Bohemia that occupies its western half. Glass from factories operating in other regions of the Czech Republic is called Czech. Both Czech and Bohemian are considered crystal due to the lead content in the raw materials. The addition of lead has become a distinctive feature of these materials. It ensures their transparency, purity and strength.

It is not possible to buy real Czech and Bohemian glass everywhere: even in Prague, many shops offer fakes. Therefore, it is important to be able to distinguish genuine Czech crafts from cheap copies. This can be done on several grounds.

Do you hear ringing?

Due to the lead content, Czech glass is able to "sing". It emits a melodic and long, slightly metallic ringing in certain conditions. This feature is considered the main sign of the authenticity of Bohemian crystal.

This method is not always applicable. It is best suited for authenticating crystal glasses. It is used to check small vases, salad bowls or candy bowls with a smooth edge. The thinner and smoother the edges of the product, the higher the chances of hearing the "singing" of the crystal. Wine glasses "sing" almost always, but a heavy carved vase may remain silent. It is best to use special glass rods for testing. Place the product you are checking on a firm, level surface. It is better not to take it in your hands or put it on soft tablecloths or stands, so as not to dampen the vibration that generates sound.

Based on the experience of many years of work of the Bohemia salon, the ringing of Bohemian and Czech glass is easily distinguishable. It lasts at least 4 seconds, it is a deep, metallic sound. It is "born" in the depths and gradually dies down. The glass vibrates slightly during sounding. This vibration is well felt on the legs of wine glasses when they are being tested.
