The Versailles design of these glasses was inspired by the Hall of Mirrors of Versailles palace. The pattern reproduces the delicate and sophisticated carvings above the mirrors. The scallop shell completes this royal design as it was an emblem of the knights. The refinement of this design is just exceptional.
The glasses are made in Eastern France, in the oldest glass factory: La Rochère. They produce French glassware for more than 500 years!
This set of 2 drinking glasses will add a very French touch to your table setting for a chic dinner or cocktail.

These glasses are perfect for water, but they can also be used as wine glasses. Just remind to serve maximum 3 to 4 onces of wine, because the flavor of wine deteriorates when exposed to oxygen. Or you can buy the Versailles set of wine glasses, precisely with a smaller capacity for an optimal wine tasting.
