Bohemian Gilt Decanter set - ID = Crystalex
« on: March 28, 2006, 02:26:46 AM »
Hi.

This decanter set has a sticker that says

Bohemian Crystal
GREGG
Made
in
Czechoslovakia

http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-1399

The set looks in very little used condition (no wear to the gold/bronzey and no chips/cracks etc)

Does anyone know when these things were produced and who produced them?

I can find nothing on "Gregg" so am assuming it may have
been the business who brought them in and sold them.

(I bought it because I love the dark green :D The gold/bronzey I ain't
so sure about LOL)

Thanks for any feedback :)

No worries, I've shifted it into the Glass Queries album for you. (The link you gave is still right for it.)

Actually it could be a future calendar candidate - it's very pretty -  I'm sorry I can't help you with any info about it though.

Thanks for fixing my little mistake, Anne :D

I think it's pretty too ... they also had an amber coloured set which I passed on as the gold parts were quite worn. I just really got a perk from the dark green (winter has lasted far toooooo long!!!!) plus the fact that the decanter and glasses are in beautiful shape.  I don't see these sets often, but I do see them now and then, but never in a "new stuff" store. Always antique and 2nd hand. I don't think they're that old though ... when I tire of it or need room for something new/different, I'll sell it (would have no idea what to ask though) or wrap it up as a gift for someone :D Meanwhile, it would just be nice to know more about the set like where and when made and sold etc. The ones I've seen have all been in BC, Canada.

The piece is from Crystalex (formerly Borske sklo). GREGG is the name of the set. Originaly from 60ties but produced for many years.
The designer is unknown forthe moment.
