The glassworks was founded in 1892 by the entrepreneur Jozef Schreiber as the last and the largest glassworks of the Viennas company Schreiber und Neffen, which had the most modern technical equipment for its time. The glassworks in Lednicke Rovne is the most successful Slovak glassworks in history.
In 1896, the Lednicke Rovne-based glassworks introduced pantographs of the English production as the first on the continent. In the 1940s, the glassworks cooperated with professional artists Vincent Hložník and Martin Benko in creation of the decors.
The production range of the glassworks was very wide and diverse from the beginning. It contained historicizing, often richly decorated pieces, while in the era of Functionalism, simple elegant cups and shapes were developed, predominantly made of clear smooth glass, which were in full compliance with the principles of this minimalist style.
These lines have been further emphasized and developed by patenting of a new handmade technology, the so-called pulled stem in 1956, which is still one of the iconic signs of glass products from Lednicke Rovne.
