Radko Ornaments

Christopher Radko


It began with a crash…

As the legend goes, the Christopher Radko Company started with the falling of Christopher’s family tree. After more than 1,000 vintage mouth-blown glass ornaments were broken, Christopher tried to replace them through searching in the United States and scouring Polish glassware markets.  His quest did not produce even one replacement ornament that met his requirements, and he soon came to realize that his only option was to start completely from scratch. Armed with the memories of his family’s ornaments, Christopher enlisted a Polish glass blower, and together they went to work recreating his family’s lost heirlooms.  In 1985, Christopher was in business. Sixty unique designs debuted that year and the rest, as they say, is history.
