Reijmyre glassworks dates back to 1810, when it was founded in 1810 by Johan Jacob Graver and Baron Mattias Alexander von Ungern-Sternberg. Reijmyre is one of Sweden's oldest still running glassworks. It´s particularly known for genuine craftsmanship and style-conscious design, both in clear and coloured crystal glass. At Reijmyre, everything is made entirely by hand. Reijmyre is perhaps mainly characterized by characteristic glass design, combined with form and function in fantastic colours, especially red, green and blue.
