As is typical for Art Nouveau, an object from nature inspired these elegant "Thistle Gold" hock glasses from Saint-Louis The thistle with its sun-shaped petal head and prickly leaves provided the idea for the gold decoration and the artistic engraving on the "Thistle Gold" glassware - even the violet colour of the eight-piece coloured collection resembles its original namesake. The design for the "Thistle" line dates back to 1913 and is one of the most classic and precious series produced by the Saint-Louis crystal glass manufactory.

Each hock glass is mouth-blown and cut by hand. The 24-carat gold ornamentation is applied with a brush and then polished with an agate stone. This technique demands tremendous skill. Each glass is a masterpiece of expert craftsmanship and takes 25 days to make; ten glassblowers are needed to create the shape and 15 other glass specialists focus on the cutting, engraving and decoration. The result ensures that every drink served in the "Thistle Gold" hock glasses is a total pleasure.
