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 5,000 employees producing 160,000 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 1,400 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.
