made in Belgium

Postcard of Flute.
© National Museums Scotland


This glass flute was made by Cristalleries du Val Saint-Lambert in Belgium in 1901.

The flute is made of clear colourless glass acid-etched with a pantograph. The stem is cut. The flute is decorated with a band of angular zigzag above network.

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.
