In Partnership with the Chateau de Versailles, Mathieu Lustrerie brings to you the finest royal chandeliers moulded on the originals and re-created by our teams, with a royal stamp showing the crowned chandelier.

The so-called “cage "chandelier begins with Louis XIV and spans all eras including the 18th and 19th centuries, although the most characteristic examples can be found in the Louis XV style. They owe their name to the simplicity of their structure - cage-shaped, empty inside - which gives them an equally aesthetic lightness - without a central core, their design is light and modern - as well as practical - their reduced weight allows them to have larger chandeliers than in previous periods, while making them easier to light or even to transport. The pendants that adorn the structure are in "pure water crystal" - natural crystal (rock crystal from the Alps without impurities) - for the most important pieces and the most fortunate clients, or in molten glass with manganese or tungsten, ancestors of lead crystal (artificial crystal), which is now called “18th century glass” or “18th century crystal”. As they age, these glasses take on smoky, purple or yellow tints.
En partenariat avec le Château de Versailles, Mathieu Lustrerie vous propose les plus beaux lustres royaux moulés sur les originaux et recréés par nos équipes, avec l'estampille royale représentant le lustre couronné.

Le lustre dit « cage », commence avec Louis XIV et traverse toutes les époques dont les XVIIIe et XIXe siècles, même si l’on en trouve les exemples les plus caractéristiques sous le style Louis XV. Ils doivent leur nom a la simplicité de leur structure - en forme de cage, vide à l’intérieur - qui leur donne une légèreté tout aussi esthétique - sans âme centrale, leur dessin est léger et moderne - que pratique - leur poids réduit permet d avoir de plus grands lustres qu’aux périodes précédentes, tout en les rendant plus simple à allumer ou même a transporter. Les pendeloques qui ornent la structure sont en « cristal d’eau pur » - du cristal naturel (cristal de roche des Alpes sans impuretés) - pour les pièces les plus importantes et les clients les plus fortunés, ou en verre fondu avec du manganese ou du tungsten, ancêtres du cristal plombé (cristal artificiel), que l’on appelle aujourd'hui « verre 18e » ou « cristal 18e ». En vieillissant, ces verres prennent des teintes fumées, violettes ou jaunes.

Before Lead crystal was discovered, the glass was mixed with Manganese, Tungstene or other materials. These materials used to give a smoky, violet or yellow tint to the glass.
