Here is a set of twelve lovely crystal Wine Glasses. This lovely pattern is named Tuilleries-Villandry. It was manufactured from 1970's into the 1990's by Cristal d'Arques-Durand.
Cristal d'Arques, created in 1968, is a branch of Arc International. Arc International was established in 1825 in the village of Arques in northern France by Alexander des Lyons de Noircarm, who began production by manufacturing glass storage containers known as "dame-jeanne" (demijohns in English), which were popular at that time. In subsequent years, the company diversified into consumer cooking and dining glassware. By the 1960s, the company had mastered the process of manufacturing stemware and other finer glassware products. From 1897 onward, the company was dominated by the Durand family, who eventually purchased the firm entirely in 1926. To this day, the family continues to be the sole proprietors.
Each stem measures 5 3/4" tall and 3" across the rim. There are no chips, cracks, flakes, or other damage of any sort that I can detect.
*Note, the group image shows only eleven glasses, but there are twelve.
These wonderful wine glasses would be marvelous on your table! Sure to make any evening of entertaining all the more special!
I, also, have other types of stems from this pattern in the shop.
Enjoy each day!
