25% off SALE!! August 9th through August 16th
Chers Amis de l’Ecole du Bon Gout,
With temperatures here in Louisiane and elsewhere, in the 90’s day after day, one needs to be careful to hydrate! Drinking a glass of lemonade out of a plastic cup is just not the same experience as drinking it out of a 19th century hand blown and hand panel cut stemmed glass!
With summer comes the urge to entertain friends and through the coarse of a party, several different forms of glassware need to be called into use! In Provence you are usually greeted upon arrival with a flute of champagne. Then at dinner, there are wine and water glasses employed. After dinner possibly a liqueur is offered. This just covers the glassware used personally and doesn’t mention the serving containers involved!
Here at Au Vieux Paris there is a wide selection of 18th and 19th century glassware to suit most all your needs!
Come by during this 25% off celebration, August 9th through August 16th, and treat yourself or stock up on gifts for those special occasions in the future!
