La Rochere revives vintage model

French glassworks La Rochere creates a new drinkware collection based on the model that’s been in the archives since 1890

The new Artois collection from French glassworks La Rochere is inspired by a form that has been in the glassworks' archives since 1890.

The combination of cut bubble shapes and rustic bourgeois character evoke a certain early 19th century provincial charm.

This glass collection bears the name of the county of Artois in the north of France, next to the county of Flanders. Solid, generous and radiant, it reflects the timeless spirit of enjoying life, French style.

The other new reference for La Rochère is the Ouessant collection. In pressed glass, the models sport rectangular stripes and are available as high ball glasses or tumblers.

Earlier this year, La Rochère glassworks acquired a distribution network in the United States: La Rochère North America. Its offices are based in Bronxville in the state of New York with the warehouses in New Jersey. The American subsidiary can be contacted by email: customerservice@larochere‐
