Verreries & Cristalleries Saint-Louis-lès-Bitche

The manufactory Saint-Louis was already founded in the 16th century in Lorraine. In 1767, King Louis XV bestowed the glassworks with the title ‘Royal glass manufactory Saint-Louis’. At the end of the 18th century, François de Beaufort developed a method to produce crystal. Therefore, the glassworks were renamed ‘Royal Crystal Manufactory‘. Since 1829, Saint-Louis has been producing the finest crystal ware and employing some of the most skilled gaffers in France. Expertise acquired over several centuries and advanced modern technologies to color, engrave and cut the glass allow the manufacture of high-quality products. (kre)
