Seven Hadelands crystal chandeliers
Hadeland Glasswerk was founded in Norway in 1762, at an estate near the town of Jevnaker. At first, the factory produced small household glass items like medicine bottles and jars. In 1852, under the leadership of Ole Berg, the company began working with crystal, making wine glasses, bowls, and vases.
Early in the 20th century, the company’s designers gained international recognition for the delicacy and sophistication of their work.
Today, the factory uses many of the same processes and techniques it used in the 18th century.
