Eager to Dethrone the Italians their monopoly as manufacturers crystallographic (glass prized for its clear comparison), it is making containers whose brightness and transparency are so innovative. It is through the addition of lead oxide in the glass paste and the incorporation of a very pure silica these new lenses have a light transmission and comparable to that of rock crystal sparkle. The Royal Glass of St. Louis in Lorraine, founded in 1767, is still the first factory in France to develop the technique of lead crystal.
Classical, baroque, carved, cut, molded, etched with acid at the wheel or diamond collections are sets of swirls, hearts and foliage, reflecting the taste of the times. The sought-after models have features that allow collectors to authenticate their origin and the lead content in the reflectivity of light.
