Entertain in style with this exceptionally fine crystal drinking set. The set was crafted by the prestigious French company, St-Louis Crystal (or Compagnie des Cristalleries de Saint-Louis). The firm dates back to 1586, making it the oldest manufacturer of glass in Europe. St-Louis was the first to discover, in 1781, the secret to making crystal. The company is still in business today and is still considered one of the most important producers of luxury glassware.
This set is composed of fifty-eight pieces of crystal. These include flat-bottomed water glasses, champagne flutes, white and red wine glasses, a decanter and a jug. The items have been finely cut with decorative cross-hatching and fluting, and their rims gilt.
