French glass candy box, created for a Michelin-starred restaurant
- Created for a renowned French Chef
- For candy, cookies, potpourri...
Verreries des Lumières created a candy box in smoked glass for Le Grand Vefour, a gastronomical restaurant in Paris existing for more than 200 years and awarded with two stars by the Michelin Guide. This unique creation for a master chef restaurant has definitely its place in your home decor!
The creation is inspired from the 18th century candy boxes. The glass is not fully transparent: we are used to white glass and crystal today but in the 18th century the glass had a unique smoothed smoked effect.
This candy box can be used to store candy of course, fresh pastries (macarons, cookies... ;), potpourri or just be kept empty as the glass reflects smoothly the light and remains beautiful as itself. The Michelin-starred restaurant Le Grand Vefour offers marshmallows in this candy box.

Verreries des Lumières, meaning The Lights glass factories in English, was created by Marie and Pascal in 2009. Their common passion for the glassware and its ancestral handmade creation was the start of La Verrerie des Lumières journey. Their inspiration originates from the royal art de vivre from the Renaissance period to the Age of Enlightment (15th to 18th century). In a nutshell, their creations give a touch of royalty and History to our homes.
Their creative process begins with historical research visiting French museums, and especially the MAD Paris, Musée des Arts Décoratifs, close to the Louvre. Then, respectful of the historical techniques, they produce the blown glass and give rise to these beautiful creations. Wow fact: you can find their creations in historical movies! They are an official provider of glassware for French and international cinema. Their creations were seen for example on the TV show Versailles.
