Incredible brilliance
Glass with a soul

Brilliance, structure and diversity of the high quality sheet glass can only be achieved through the practice of this way of production. The high quality of these glasses is guaranteed by the technical know-how and craftsmanship Glashütte Lamberts has gathered over the decades.

Characteristic features of the mouth-blown Clear and Coloured Glasses are the distinct, yet unobtrusive surface structure and the bubbles in round or oval shape. When exposed to light the outstanding transparency,brilliance and body of these mouth-blown sheet glasses are displayed.

Production

Our mouth-blown genuine antique glass is 100% hand-made. Our glassmakers have preserved the centuries-old technique of flat glass production and this is the only way to achieve the special character and unique structure of these high-quality glass sheets.

Technique and Colours

Individual sheets measure approx. 60x90 cm (24" x 36") and are approx. 3 mm (1/8") thick. All the sheets are delivered with their edges still intact. Small variations in the dimensions occur due to the handmade production of the individual sheets. These mouth-blown glasses can be made in any colour imaginable.

More than 5000 colour combinations are available at Glashütte Lamberts – by far a larger selection than any other glassmaker can offer. Due to their excellent handling characteristics, the Original Lamberts-Glasses are truly predestined for complex and ambitious applications.

A box containing 200 selected colours helps our customers to choose the appropriate glass. It is also our policy to individually produce custom glass according to our clients’ ideas and patterns.

Characteristic features of the mouth-blown Clear and Coloured Glasses are the distinct, yet unobtrusive surface structure and the bubbles in round or oval shape.

All variations, from no bubbles to foamy, can be produced. This creates almost infinite combinations of structure and colour possibilities.
