Antique nut coupe made by Val Saint Lambert in their best year 1908. This model is designed by Hubert Fouarge. Fouarge is associated with the most exclusive pieces by Val Saint Lambert, first and foremost because he worked there in the absolute top period. It was the apex both in sales and of expansion, though even more important, it was the period that the factory produced its best quality pieces. Up until today, nobody has been able to equalise the quality of the products of Val of that time. Fouarge was ‘chef de tailleries’ (cutting studios) as of 1893. Under his watch and with his designs, Val Saint Lambert experienced its top. This coupe is made of crystal with a lead content of approx. 33-40%, which is a lot higher than the legally determined 24%. It gives the piece a gorgeous quality and brilliance.
Today, Val Saint Lambert has a presence in more than forty countries, from the USA to Saudi Arabia, from Spain to Japan. It has become the business card of Walloon. The government took a stake in the company in the 1980s due the impending bankruptcy of the company. A Val Saint Lambert piece, famous for its marvellous double-coloured cut crystal, is a sought-after collector’s item or an expensive business gift, also for princes and diplomats. The company for instance supplied the glass seats (amongst others, because of the ‘frigidity’ of the material) for the World Exhibition in Sevilla. The offering has been broadened and modernised since, though the manufacturing of the unique pieces is still artisanal.
It has a length of approx. 25 cm.
