Saint-Louis Versailles Vase
Requiring strength, total precision and no less than seven weeks to create, this exquisite vase represents the absolute pinnacle of the glassblowers’ and engravers’ craft. With its pure French style and magnificent diamond- and slice-cut design, it has become the emblem of the House of Saint-Louis. Founded in 1767–with roots going back almost 200 years earlier–the Cristallerie Royale de Saint-Louis has shaped the very history of glasswork, and created fine crystal for generation after generation of kings and queens. Today, Saint-Louis forges a path between heritage and innovation, remaining strenuously committed to preserving the methods it’s perfected over centuries of high-level craftsmanship, while at the same time staying on the cutting edge of modern crystal techniques and design.
