The Rückl family glassworks is renowned for top-quality cut crystal since 1846.

However, glass-melting tradition and time-tested glassmaking techniques have been handed down in this family from generation to generation for some three hundred years. Located in Nižbor, Central Bohemia, the glassworks focuses on exclusive hand-made production, with master-level glass cutting in two esthetic styles. While the Rückl Contemporary collection boasts modern shapes and a pastel-crystal color palette, Rückl Heritage proudly highlights classic beverage crystal sets with delicately cut patterns

Both design lines continue the heritage of a brand that sees the art of glassmaking as more than fine craft. For us, it’s a mission.

With a long and intricate history, after 170 years the Rückl glassworks facility buzzes with energy. 

Our power is driven from a family sense of togetherness that spans nine generations, as well as our belief in quality glass and authentic craft. Innovation and excellence in production is the core mission for the 140 employees that work with us today, ready to go out of their way to meet client requirements and take their craft to the next level. Rückl is not merely a glassworks, it’s a family, a community of those who believe in what they do and how they do it, each contributing their best skills and abilities.
