Saint Louis Crystal was established in eastern France in 1586. The oldest “cristallerie" in Europe, they produced fine crystal for the kings of France in the 18th century. Saint Louis also innovated a practice we take for granted today: the use of sets of luxury stemware for the dining table, introduced with its famous Trianon service in 1834. As chemistry advanced in the 19th century, Saint Louis began producing a wide array of colored crystal, adding complex cut patterns, and subtle gold ornament. Each piece of Saint Louis crystal is signed by a master glassmaker, many of whom hold the title Meilleur Ouvrier de France, or Best French Craftsperson. Generation upon generation of technical and artistic skill make delicate Saint Louis crystal a timeless choice for the most elegant tables.
