Welcome to the website of "the Czech"


“The Czech”, Alfred Jecelin, the wealthy owner of the firm AJEKO was once known from Australia to America for his Christmas decorations. In that period, the factory worked throughout the year almost exclusively to the production of Christmas decoration items. Forty years later, he died in 1987 in Euskirchen as poor as Job. Our aim is to describe the life of this remarkable man by means of details from his archive and glass work that he has made during his active period. Alfred had the habit to keep a sample of each production. A large part of it we have found in Euskirchen. Since it is a significant number the website is launched with a small amount of information but it will grow systematically. There are more than 1,000 different pieces. See also at Products. Do you want to see Alfred in action? Check out this 16mm color film used in supermarkets to promote his products


We hope that the website gives interesting surprising information about the Christmas decorations manufacturer as a glassblower and as a human being. Contrary to the old days you won't find the navigation at the top but in the sidebar on the left. Do you like an introduction or check out the new features here Introduction
