The Lyonnais Quinquet glasses are inspired by the Fête des Lumières in Lyon, France. This unique Lyonnais tradition happens every year on December 8th where every house has votive candles in little glass containers in all their windows to participate in the festival and light up the streets. We like to use the Lyonnais Quinquet just like this, as a votive and also as a drinking glass!
These are entirely made by hand and each creation is unique. Therefore, there may be a slight variation in color, texture, and size between each piece. On the base of each item, you can feel the pontil mark left by the glassblower’s cane. The presence of this mark indicates that the glass was blown freehand. This is the beauty of handmade.
The Lyonnais Quinquet is available in blue, dark brown, green, light blue, light green, olive, smoky, transparent, turquoise & yellow.
