The Shakespearean polemic and lifelong search for answers threads through the entire Hamlet Collection. Designer Rony Plesl drew his inspiration from the timeless story of a Danish prince and created an unusually esthetically strong and daring design, referencing this famous tragic tale. To be or not to be? Gold or platinum? This was also a question reflected upon by the designer. For this reason, the collection was created in both versions – with either a gold or platinum skull. Hamlet uniquely combines the traditional technique of hand painting glass with a distinctly contemporary design.

Traditional hand-made production. Top-quality Czech glass. Modern design. Each piece from the Hamlet Collection is handled by twelve specialists to ensure attention to the tiniest details. The wooden forms into which our glassmakers blow the molten crystal are hand turned on a lathe to give each product its shape and size. The glass-cutting workshop then pays particular attention to the crystal stopper, which becomes its own small masterpiece in the hands of glasscutters from Nižbor. And finally, the set is decorated with hand-painted skulls that give the Hamlet collection its iconic look.

The elegant carafe is proudly decorated with a lustrous skull and notable black stopper, cut in the shape of a crown to reference its famous royal family. The drinkware set is composed of a small and large carafe, high-ball, whiskey and shot glasses for distillates. The entire collection is available in both gold and platinum versions, offering a unique option to coordinate with your interior design preferences.
