More about the Company- Von Poschinger

Founded in 1568, Von Poschinger is Germany’s oldest glassworks. The Poschinger family have nurtured and protected their glass making knowledge and expertise for 450 years.

A team of four glassblowers work on each piece, keeping the glass at the required 1200 degree temperature. Once completed, the glass is cooled and then finishing touches are added before being tested for quality. Only perfect pieces are signed with the Von Poschinger seal.

It takes 10 years to learn the techniques of mouth blown glass. It is estimated that only 500 people in Germany have the skills. To keep the technique alive, Von Poschinger glassworks became a member of the Intangible Cultural Heritage Directory in 2015.

Perhaps the secret to the company’s longevity is this commitment to quality and an unwillingness to expand to an industrial size. Von Poschinger still only has 25 employees.
