La Rochère is a French glassware brand since 1475. The Bee collection was inspired by the emperor Napoléon who chose bees as an emblem of his reign. Bees were present on furniture fabrics, carpets, flags... And even on his royal coat. The bees also symbolize the timeless French art of living in Provence and the French chic of the southern French countryside.
