Today, Val-Saint-Lambert has a presence in more than forty countries, from the USA to Saudi Arabia, from Spain to Japan. It has almost become the business card of Walloon. The government took a stake in the company in the 1980s due the impending bankruptcy of the company. A Val Saint Lambert piece, famous for its marvellous double-coloured cut crystal, was a sought-after collectorâ€™s item or an expensive business gift, including princes and diplomats. They for instance delivered the glass seats (amongst others, because of the frigidity of the material) for the World Exhibition in Sevilla. The offering has been broadened and modernised, though the manufacturing of unique pieces is still artisanal.
The set is in good condition given its age. There is however some corrosion on the inside of the carafe and the glass, and the lid is not a perfect fit on the cottoniere.
