Cristallerie-St. Louis is the world famous glass house in France, makers of the finest crystal and suppliers to French kings. Active as glass makers since 1586, they have been recognised for their superior craftsmanship. This pattern, first made in 1913, is one of the Cristallerie's most exclusive patterns. It has graced many Presidential dinner tables for official occasions. Each piece takes 25 days to make; 10 glass blowers shape the piece, and then 15 other specialists hand cut, engrave and decorate it. The fine 24kt gold pattern is painted on with a small brush and then fired and polished with agate stone.
This is a heavy and beautifully cut piece that will be the star of a dining table or bar, or make a unique gift.
The acid etched mark for St. Louis Crystal France, is found on the base.
Size-4.75 inches high without handle and 7.5 inches high including handle by 4 5/8 inches outside diameter, and 3 7/8 inches inside diameter. Interior depth is 4 inches.
Weight-1.95 kilos.
Saint Louis glass pieces, made by master craftsmen, are as elegant and traditional today, as they have been for centuries.
This opulent and breathtakingly beautiful piece will hold ice cubes or a bottle of wine for chilling.
See listings for a matching champagne saucer/tall sherbet glass in this same pattern, as well as a special St. Louis goblet in a cut and engraved pattern.
In very good condition, and a wonderful value at 445.00.
