Glossary Words

opaline

Fine semi-opaque, white and coloured glass, developed by the French in the first half of the 19th century, with a translucent quality.

St Louis

Founded in 1586, the Müntzthal glassworks become Verrerie royale in 1767 through Louis XV’s royal seal of approval. Producing high quality table glass, many designs with fine gilded borders or scrolling flowers, they still produce fine glassware today.
