Located in the department of Haute-Saône, on the borders of three regions of France: Lorraine, Franche-Comté and Champagne, it was founded in 1475 by Symon de Thysac, a gentleman glassmaker.
With a wealth of know-how, perpetuated for more than five centuries, it develops collections in mouth-blown glass and mechanical glass ranging from 18th century reissues to designer creations.
