Palais Versailles by Tiffin/Franciscan Crystal
This beautiful pattern was inspired the majesty of the Versailles Palace near Paris, France. The 17th century palace itself is one of the most enduring symbols of France, and was orginally commissioned by King Louis XIV. Today, the house and the grounds are a state museum for the French people. The Tiffin Glass Company designed
Palais Versailles to be a regal, majestic crystal stemware whose inspiration is directly attributed to grandeur of Louis XIV's creation. Each of the heavy stems in the pattern feature a multifaceted diamond cut. A tear drop air bubble in the center of each stem adds an out-of-the-ordinary design touch to an already distinctive pattern. Sitting atop each stem is a smooth bowl that is accented in the French Imperial style with rich, ornate gold trim and olive cuts. In the center of each of these noble cuts there is a regal gold design featuring a vase overrunning with flowers.
Palais Versailles required more than 60 workers to complete a single goblet. After each goblet was blown and decorated, 12 inspectors checked the goblet for imperfections. We have a great collection of these stunning pieces, follow the links below to add a touch of Versailles to your home!|
