More about the company -Elias Lauscha

They have been producing glass in the Thuringian forest town of Lauscha for 400 years. The sandy soil of the forest, rich in iron oxide, is what gives the glass its distinctive green colour.

Lauscha can be credited with the invention of glass Christmas treebaubles in the 18th century and was put firmly on the map when Queen Victoria’s German husband trimmed the palace Christmas trees with glass decorations from Lauscha.

It is also here that local glassblower Ludwig Müller-Uri created the first artificial glass eyes in 1835.

Elias Glassware continue to honour the heritage of their glassmaking tradition while innovating with environmental technology- their glassware is 100% recyclable.
