Saint-Louis Crystal Thistle Gold Barware
Inspired by a thistle, this exquisitely crafted and meticulously detailed service was created for the 1909 Exposition de Nancy, the apex of the Art Nouveau movement. Balancing crisp styling with organic richness, the clarity of crystal with the warmth of gold, this pattern is a true classic. 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.
