VAL ST LAMBERT
In 1202 the Bishop of Liege granted 32 acres in the locality of Val Saint-Lambert Belgium to a group of Cistercian monks who built a large monastery complex. The monastery was active and thriving for almost six hundred years but was eventually abandoned in 1789.
In 1826 M. Kemlin a chemist and M. Lelievre who had been employed at the Voneche crystal works in the Ardennes bought the deserted buildings and opened the Val Saint-Lambert Glassworks Company. The crystal factory reached its pinnacle of success shortly before WWI with 5000 employees producing 160000 pieces per day. Val Saint-Lambert gained international recognition due to its high quality purity and exceptional brilliance. Unfortunately sales began to decline in the 1930s despite government intervention. In 1987 a Belgian manager bought the factory and has regained a measure of success with current production of 1400 unique items.
Overall Condition is Used - Good. Shows wear to gold rim due to age and use. Val St. Lambert signature is etched in glass on the underside of both the plate and bowl.
