Royal Leerdam was established in 1878 as a department within a glassware producing factory, Glasfabriek Leerdam, itself founded in 1765. Designing and glassblowing were in the past strictly separated. Several well-known designers as Hendrik Petrus Berlage, Karel de Bazel, Andries Copier, Sybren Valkema, and Willem Heesen have contributed to the Royal Leerdam reputation with a wide range of designer glassware. Best known has become the so-called range of products Gilde Glass (1930) by Andries Copier, as an example of both simplicity and beauty. Glass art created by Royal Leerdam Crystal was and still is very sought after by museums and collectors worldwide.NOTE: All accepted offers must be paid within 24 hours or the order may be canceled.
