Created in 1950 the Versailles vase tests the strength and precision of Saint-Louis glassblowers and glasscutters: no less than seven to eight weeks of work are necessary for the creation of its largest model. The shape and the design, with the diamond and slice cuts, are inspired by the urns in the Garden of Versailles. The purest expression of the French style.

The thistle was the inspiration for the design of this service, created for the 1909 Nancy exhibition, at the height of Art Nouveau. Chardon, in reference to Nancy's emblem, was presented with the city's motto: "Qui s'y frotte s'y pique" ("He who rubs it, stings it"). Later, as a result of the Entente Cordiale, Chardon became Thistle and shone on the finest tables. Thistle has been in existence for 110 years, and from the 1970s onwards has been adorned in gold and platinum.
