Wine glass

This wine glass was made by Cristalleries du Val Saint-Lambert in Belgium in the late 19th century.

The wine glass has a clear red bowl and clear colourless foot and stem. The bowl is acid-etched with a pantograph featuring tall plants and single flowers.

Val Saint-Lambert was set up in 1826 but it was not until the end of the century that it had acquired its status as a pioneering glassmaker through highly original products. After privatisation in 1987, the company management demonstrated its intention in boosting productivity once again by calling on both internal and external designers. Cristalleries du Val Saint-Lambert continues today.
