Our St Louis Crystal ProductsRobert Leigh
Here at Stag House Replacements, we offer a range of crystal glass products from various names. Today we will focus on those from St Louis Crystal, renowned as the oldest glass manufacture in France. Read on to find out more about the history of these crystal glass makers, the company today and what St Louis products we can offer you.
The History of St Louis Crystal
Founded in 1767, St Louis (or, in French, Compagnie des Cristalleries de Saint Louis), has roots that date back to 1586. Not only is the company the first glass manufacturer in France, but it also holds the title of being the first crystal glass manufacturer in the whole of continental Europe. You can find out more about the iconic brand in the production halls of the factory itself, where its museum is located, exhibiting four centuries of its technical development and artistic creations. Initially focussed on making luxury and high-quality goods, it was in the 1800s that the manufacturer also operated in the field of medium-range goods of a lower quality to be affordable to the masses.
St Louis Crystal Today
The St Louis brand has stood the test of time, still operating today with modern creations that carry forward its classic style. Whilst the company has seen it through difficult times, affected by economic crises and becoming nationalised, it has since been re-privatised from 1987 and products today have also been expanded into engineered materials such as abrasives and ceramics. The company now has factories internationally, increasing their distribution. With many artists having worked with the brand, it has become known for its blend of tradition and innovation, which is perhaps why it has been able to last just so many years.
