Duralex Picardie Glasses
Posted Thursday, July 28th, 2005
I am looking for information about Duralex Picardie glasses - who makes them, where to get some etc. Duralex was a French company and the 'Picardie' is the model of drinking glass illustrated here. This unassuming masterpiece of 20th century design is being featured in my catalogue of design classics. If you know anything at all about the design, manufacture, or history of the Duralex Picardie drinking glass or where they can be obtained, please add a comment or send the information via my contact page.
I recently bought a set of six 'Vintage' Duralex Picardie drinking glasses off Ebay, for just over 20 GBP - four large glasses and two small ones, complete with original Duralex labels. The seller is someone in Arizona, and the glasses are yet to arrive in the UK. I've been assured they will be packed with plenty of bubblewrap and arrive in good order [they did].
