Two symbols of the French art of living
For more than 250 years, the Palace of Versailes and the Saint-Louis crystal works have carved out a friendship in crystal around The Table and, in doing so, have contributed to promoting the glowing reputation of France and its exceptional craftmanship.
Four centuries in the making, the Palace of Versailles is a symbol in itself of the French art of living – the product of royal style and the expertise of the Crown's manufactures.
In 1767, Louis XV himself signed letters patent conferring the name of Saint-Louis on the glassworks, in honour of Louis IX, as well as the title of "Royal" manufacture and a coat-of-arms, a crown. This invisible thread has been reinforced over time and through crystal creations.
