Saint-Louis Tommy Dark Blue Hock
Launched in a royal ceremony at Versailles in 1938 and featuring starred feet, beveled stems, and forms adorned with diamond cuts, ribbons and beading, the extensive service that makes up the Tommy collection is a brilliant and versatile representation of glassmaking at its most agile. In this line, the classic design is given added brio by a range of rich, jewel-tone colors. While traditionally used for white wine, hocks make superb glasses for any occasion. 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.
