In selected pieces of OERTEL, you will find an artisanal and special type of finish – crystal engraving.
The sophisticated technology of the ‘Radgravur’ comes from Bohemia, the homeland of OERTEL where it was already in use in 1869. In this hand-free process, smaller and smaller copper wheels are used to cut the crystal. The engraving is particularly suitable for the production of very fine and delicate decorations. The process is extremely time-consuming and labour-intensive, and results in the production of our most precious and unique pieces.
