Hand blown glass has been produced in the Orrefors region of Sweden for
more than two and a half centuries, where, against a backdrop of wild,
deep forests and open glistening lakes, the first Orrefors glassworks
It was their unique glass figurine engravings which won them the Grand
Prix medal at the Paris World Exhibition in 1925 that cemented Orrefors
as a leading pioneer in the glassware industry. Almost 90 years on, this
same ingenuity of Swedish craftsmanship is unmatched.
For designers like Erika Lagerbielke, there is no greater love than
injecting her knowledge of glassware and their affinity with various
drinks into every piece of Orrefors stemware.
Her Intermezzo collection with its characteristic drop embedded in
the crystal has won her accolades. Slender and refined, the refractions
in this Claret Glass stand to attention. Ideal for serving traditional
claret wine from Bordeaux, savour each subtle flavour note with this
specialised design. The satin drop is seemingly suspended within the
crystal, a trick of the eye that can only be achieved by skilfully
rendering the crystal with brilliant clarity.
