Saint Louis Queens' Hall #2 Collection, Set of 4 Glasses

$520.00

The variety of the Galerie des Reines (Queens’ Hall) glasses’ cuts magnify the richness of Saint-Louis know-how and draw inspiration from the Decorative Arts of the Palace of Versailles in vogue, during the lives of four emblematic queens: deep and solar bevels cuts in tribute to Marie-Thérèse of Austria; fine bevels cuts in celebration of the Rocaille-style shells and of the fireworks of a time of delights under Marie Leszczynska; a cord and a frieze of tilted fine bevels suggesting a coronet of wheat spikes–inspiredf rom Antique style–which allude to the taste of Marie-Antoinette of Austria; and flatcuts which soften and modernize the neo-medieval style appreciated under Marie-Amélie de Bourbon-Siciles.

The low-stemmed glasses, with generous gobs and ringed legs, chosen for this new collection, invite daily use and a freedom of appropriation. The feet stamped with the initials of each queen and the Château de Versailles x Saint-Louis seal – an emblem of a renewed bond – are pretext for playing and conversing. Each crystal cut crown is revealed while drinking, whereas the identity of the associated queen is left up to conjecture. The variety of the Galerie des Reines (Queens’ Hall) represents four emblematic queens. The first, deep and solar bevels cuts in tribute to Marie-Thérèse of Austria (1638-1683), Infant of Spain (""the Empire where sun never sets""), who brought with her the splendor and lifestyle from the Spanish Court, alongside Louis XIV. The second, fine bevels cuts in celebration of the Rocaille-style shells and of the fireworks of a time of delights under Marie Leszczynska (1703-1768). Painter and polyglot, the queen strongly influenced the artistic life of her time, alongside Louis XV. The third, A cord and a frieze of tilted fine bevels suggesting a coronet of wheat spikes–inspired from Antique style–which allude to the taste of Marie-Antoinette of Austria (1755-1793) and to the informal ornamental gardens she liked to bloom in the estate of Trianon. And the fourth, flatcuts which soften and modernize the neo-medieval style appreciated under Marie-Amélie de Bourbon-Siciles, last sovereign of France; and who inaugurated with Louis-Philippe, the museum of history of France at the Palace of Versailles.
