Maison & Co. first discovered this charming bee pattern while traveling in Provence. We fell in love with the whimsical bees and the fresh lines of the glassware. Incorporate the feel of the French countryside into each meal with this lovely glassware.
La Rochere, located in France, is the oldest continuous working glass factory in Europe. It was founded in 1475. La Rochere produces glass in "crystalline," a quality close to that of crystal, which has much better transparency and luster due to the high pitched resonance of the "crystalline."
Officially chosen during his coronation, the bee motif was incorporated into the coat of arms. The bee can be found on court coats, upholstery fabric, carpets, and flags. This glass collection was inspired by a travel set belonging to Napoleon and is today displayed at the Musee Carnavalet in Paris.
