French mouth-blown glass bulbs
- 18th century inspired
- Recommended by collectors
Verreries des Lumières created a line of glass bulbs, mouth-blown, that can decorate our homes... not only for the Christmas season! More than 30 glass bulbs were created throughout the years and we selected 3 of them whose design combines timeless elegance with versatility.
- Spun sugar: this original design reminds the art of baking sugar. The glass bulb is quite opaque but still reflects the light and colors of its environment.
- Twisted ribs: this version is in smoked glass with the twists increasing even more the effects of the light.
- Vertical ribs: this creation in transparent glass reproduces the design of the vase. Inspired from the 18th century, this version is a total classic.
These glass bulbs can be a home decor all year long, as an elegant piece in a table setting or as a decor on a dresser for example. And of course, it will end the year on the Christmas tree!

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.
