For sale is a set of 6 beautiful, antique blue opaline glass goblets produced by Portieux Vallerythal of France. Vallerysthal/Portieux is a glass producer with a complex history. Founded in 1836, at Lorraine, France, as Societe des Verreries Reunies de Plaine de Walsch et Vallerysthal, which then became Klenglin et Cie in 1855. A mix of Bohemian and French glass workers created a thrilling array of opaline and decorative glass.
As with all Vallerysthal/Portieux coloured glassware, the robin's egg colour type is almost unique to them. It is an aqua turquoise which was produced using additions of copper oxide to the batch of crystal with varying amounts of other non-metallic elements.
The use of Copper as a glass colorant can be traced back to the Roman Empire. In fact, little has changed throughout the history of glass making, as metallic oxides & non-metallic elements (such as Carbon, Phosphorus and sulphur for example) have been used to produce all coloured glass to this day. All 6 goblets are in excellent condition.
