SPIEGELAU, TECHNOLOGY AND TRADITION AT HAND
When it comes to technology and technique, one of the best companies on the European market is the great Spiegelau, which has started trading at a competitive level a long time ago: we are talking about five centuries of art and glass decoration. Ancient and special techniques, mixed with the latest innovations make Spiegelau one of the most important German companies in the glass industry. The first glass factory was founded in 1521 and in fact, it appears in the will of Erasmo Mospurger. From that moment, it creates a series of glass products such as mirrors, beads and bottles that were very appreciated by the emerging bourgeois society, starting from 1600. In 1840, Spiegelau created a collection of snuff tobacco bottles. Since 1900, the factory was modernized thanks to new technologies and it took the name Spiegelau in 1926, as desired by the owner Fritz Pretzfelder. Since that time, it has become more specialized and now it works at a competitive level on world markets. The company's strength is the quality of the glass. We know very well that there are different types of glass, but not all the glass on the market has the right brightness and light. It often happens that what is passed off as glass, after some washes the low quality of the material become evident to the touch and not only. Spiegelau, thanks to its continuous research and its secular studies, has the primacy of crystal, providing the highest-quality glass surfaces thanks to the use of pure materials. This allows the best tasting of wine and drinks, extolling their aroma. We can't deny it: a good glass, built with quality materials, has a strong impact on the drink it "hosts." Stem glasses are one of the strength of this company, in fact, every shape is curated in detail and made in Germany. Spiegelau's items are used in the best restaurants around the world. And there's more: Spiegelau has some strong partnerships with the best sommelier in order to ensure a good product for different tastings. If the company has been on the market for over five centuries, the quality of its products is certainly guaranteed. Spiegelau glasses are so special and elegant that they certainly won't go unnoticed, and even the best restaurants and hotels have chosen to use them: this is a sure sign of great esteem for these products made in Germany. If you take a trip in Bavaria, you will have the possibility to get to know the company and admire his creations. It is also possible to visit the factory outlets and to buy unique glass objects at very affordable prices.
