By Cristallerie Royal de Champagne, Bayel (French, founded 1666), and marked both ‘Bayel’ and ‘Depose,’ this remarkable and beautiful collection of crystal glassware forms a toilet set and a wonderful bathroom addition.
Comprising 11 pieces in total, there are 10 bottles, of varying sizes between 20cm and 11cm tall, and a single tray. The bottles each come with a matching stopper, in red crystal, and the bottles are similarly capped with red before fading through orange to clear glass as the pieces descend.
Each is exceptionally beautifully modelled, with diagonal ridge wave cuts down their lengths, matching with the glass tray as well Exceptionally skillfully crafted, they form a beautiful set, by some of France’s finest glassmakers.
