Fleur de Lys clear glass gobelet - Set of 6
Made in France
Stable and sturdy
Founded in 1475, this company is the oldest glassworks factory in France. They produce tableware and decorative art pieces using different techniques that vary from mouth-blown to pressed glass to newer technology. The polish is still obtained through a fire polish, an old and proven method. Their collections are very traditional, yet relevant to contemporary life styles.
A pressure seam is sometimes visible, mostly on the glasses. It is not a defect. Rather, it is the mark left when opening the mold in which the glass is pressed, and it is the characteristic of authenticity and tradition.
A note from Coco:
These gobelets are perfect for your next cocktail party, for juice, lemonade, home-made beverages, etc.
I sincerely enjoyed my visit at this 540+ year old company. Can you imagine a company that old?!! No doubt, they must be doing something right. I was amazed to see some very old techniques still being used, and that is what makes the difference in each and every single piece. The high point for me was the store which displayed their products quite beautifully, from plates to glasses to table lights to serving pieces to art glass, all pieces that I am hoping to bring to you very soon.
The store itself used to be the shed where the firewood for the factory was being stored and dried, back in the days when the factory was wood powered. Beautifully and tastefully remodeled, it now hosts the company showroom.
