Legendary crystal glassmaker Orrefors has a history of perfectionism: the myriad types of Orrefors glass – crystal bowls, vases, candleholders, wine glasses, chandeliers, sculptures, art glass and more – are handblown by master craftsmen deep in the forests of Sweden. To go to the village of Orrefors, set in a countryside dotted with deep dark lakes, grassy meadows, old stone farmhouses and those ancients forests, is to go to another world, one in which the Swedish glass industry has thrived since 1742. Orrefors itself was founded in 1726 by Lars Johan Silversparre, who named his iron foundry after the nearby Orre waterfall; in 1898 it was converted to a glassworks. There followed a glowing history – winning the Grand Prix at the Paris World’s Fair in 1925, becoming the official purveyor of wedding gifts and stemware to the Swedish royal family – and plenty of collaborations with master glassblowers and designers, including, most recently, Karl Lagerfeld, whose line for Orrefors includes a range of startlingly original wine glasses, tumblers and vases.
