Product Description

Discover Chasse à la licorne paperweight Saint-Louis, 2017 edition, limited at 50 copies.

PAPERWEIGHT HISTORY :

Today, Saint-Louis crystal is the only one that still creates these precious sulphides. As early as the 16th century, Murano’s glassmakers made glass balls in which they trapped twisted rods and multicoloured ribbons. The first paperweight signed by Saint-Louis was not created until 1845. Follow the creations of the Baccarat and many others. The infatuation is immediate and the vogue lasts until 1860. Production then declined and ceased towards the end of the century.

From time immemorial, the paperweight intrigues, questions and excites. These little glass balls are part of the history of French glassware. Collectors include Queen Victoria, Empress Eugenie, King Farouk, and Jeanne Lanvin

SAINT-LOUIS PAPERWEIGHT :

Saint-Louis perpetuates this tradition with an exclusive production. Indeed, every year, four to eight paperweights are created in limited and numbered series.

To better understand this know-how, Saint-Louis offers a visit to its workshops by reservation. During your visit, a stop is made at the paperweight workshop. Each paperweight need ten hours of work! Five to six people work at this workshop, requiring great patience.
