I bought the attractive glasses at the Twindmills Market in Colborne. I have had my eyes on them for a long time. We stop there regularly on the way to and from visiting the grandkids in Belleville.
Walked in the other day and the vendor had a great table full of amber glass on sale. These, and two candlesticks, became mine!
I had been looking for them for ages, but as the song says……..”looking in all the wrong places!”
I posted them on the Vintage Glass Identification Facebook group and someone had identified them in a very short time.
The pattern is called Theodule and they were made by Val. St. Lambert. I know nothing about this company and would never have identified these pieces without help. From Wikipedia –
“Val Saint Lambert is a Belgian crystal glassware manufacturer, founded in 1826 and based in Seraing. It has the royal warrant of King Albert .”
The company is still in operation – http://www.val-saint-lambert.com/index.html
I found these items online and if various posters are accurate, these pieces were produced during the 1950s.
Don’t know if they would be wines or water goblets. But they are a great colour of amber and very arresting looking.
