Saint-Louis Crystal
© All rights reserved

In 1767, King Louis XV chose as the Royal Glassworks a glass manufacturer in Münzthal, Saint-Louis-Lès-Bitche, whose roots dated back to 1586. The Royal Glassworks of Saint Louis was officially born and just a few years later, in 1781, it was the first in continental Europe to discover the secret formula of crystal, which soon became the core of its activity.

Saint Louis is a global luxury brand of unsurpassed prestige and quality in its craft. Every day the Münzthal manufacturer signs crystal creations: tableware, decoration pieces, lightings and furniture crafted by master glassblowers and cutters considered to be among the very best in France. All possess irreplaceable knowledge and ancestral skills enriched from generation to generation: the crystal is mouth-blown, hand cut, hand engraved and hand decorated using 24-carat gold or platinum.
