The “Thistle Gold” glassware dates back to 1913 and is one of the most exclusive lines produced by the Cristallerie Saint-Louis.
Its magnificent appearance has led to it being frequently chosen to decorate presidential dinner tables on official occasions. Every glass is mouthblown and hand-engraved.
The elegant, fine gold pattern is painted with a small brush, then fired and polished with agate stone.
Each glass is a masterpiece of expert craftsmanship and takes 25 days to make; ten glassblowers are needed to create the shape and 15 other glass specialists focus on the cutting, engraving and decoration.
