Lyonnais Quinquet

Lyonnais Quinquet in transparent glass.  

The Lyonnais Quinquet glasses are inspired by the Fête des Lumières in Lyon, France. This unique Lyonnais tradition happens every year in December, where each house has votive candles in mini glass containers to light up the streets. Great to use just like this or can be used as a mini drinking glass. 

Hand-blown using only recycled glass.

Dimensions: approx 7cm high and 6.5cm wide.

All glassware is made by hand, therefore may have a slight variation in colour, 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.

La Soufflerie is a non-profit association of glassblowers created by Sébastien and Valentina Nobile. The structure began with the sale of vases dedicated to florists. La Soufflerie now produces a complete range of glassware and lifestyle items.
