Saint Louis Knight, Flannel Grey
Differentiating itself from the other characters in chess whose shapes are smooth and clear, the Knight’s own aspect is more vivid and natural. Recalling the ardor usually associated with the Knight, he is the one that leads the others into battle. With Saint Louis’ masterful mold techniques, the Flannel Grey Knight reflects a brave austerity and distinguished elegance.

Since 1829, Saint-Louis has been exclusively devoted to the production of crystal-glass items. Considered amongst the very best in France, Saint-Louis’ master glassblowers put forth magnificent crystal creations including tableware, vases, chandeliers and lighting items. Blending tradition and innovation while continually drawing inspiration from contemporary artistic trends, Saint-Louis continues to renew and reshape its artistic identity.
The Flannel Grey Knight reflects the work of Saint-Louis’ master glassmakers who endeavour to create the finest and most transparent glass possible. Renamed « Cristallerie royale de Saint-Louis » in the early 19th Century, the manufacture became exclusively devoted to the production of crystal-glass items. They introduced the concept of the Trianon service which was about creating a set of glasses for the dining table.
Unmatched, dense, pure and luminous, born from a ball of fire and the breath of man, Saint-Louis crystal vibrates with all the talent passed down from its rich heritage and the creative fantasy inspired by modern trends. Saint-Louis is truly a manufacturer of its time. Their master glass blowers all possess the irreplaceable ancestral skills and knowledge passed down from generation to generation. Each crystal piece is mouth-blown, hand-cut, hand-engraved and hand-decorated with platinum or 24-carat gold. The fine art of living in crystal is certain to seduce the world.
