♦ CRYSTAL HISTORY :
The cristalliers, as the glassworkers , were first established in forested areas that provided the wood to heat melting furnaces and even the ashes which supplied potassium. In these remote areas , the royal privilege allowed them to wear the sword to defend himself , hence the name " glass nobility" mocked by the blood of the true nobility . In France, the story of the crystal begins in Lorraine with the glass factory of Münzthal based in 1586, but it is only in 1767 when king Louis XVI confers him by obvious letter the title of "royal Glass factory of Saint-Louis" and in 1782 François de Beaufort finalizes the formula of the crystal with more than 35 % of lead.
