Dyatkovo crystal-glass ware production has existed for over 200 years and has a rich history. The artistic and material qualities of Dyatkovo crystal-glass make it a true pearl of Russian artistic glasswork.
Since long ago it has been considered the best cut-glass in Russia. In 1829 Dyatkovo crystal-glass was awarded Gold Medal at the first public exhibition of Russian manufactured articles. “Dyatkovo Crystal-Glass” is a local economic mainstay of Dyatkovo town.
The enterprise was founded by the noblewoman Maria Maltsova in 1790. The plant started production of high-quality cut-glass with masterly thin facet cut and articles with flashed glass.
Starting as a small manufacture with only a hundred people of staff, the plant grew into one of the biggest glassmaking enterprises of Russia in the 19th century. As a rule, entire families worked at the plant, children and teens assisting their parents. As a result, there appeared dynasties of experienced virtuoso masters, whose professional secrets were passed on from one generation to another. The range of products was very broad and diverse; Dyatkovo crystal-glass ware became known all over Russia.
