Duralex Original Picardie / 36cl / Set of 6
Tempered Glass / 36cl
Duralex has been manufacturing tempered glassware since 1945. Ideal for both hot and cold drinks, these stackable, impact-resistant and chip-resistant glasses feel very comfortable in your hand and can be used in the microwave or freezer.
In 1945, Duralex invented the glass tempering process, a manufacturing method that produces virtually unbreakable glassware. The procedure involves heating the glass to around 1292 degrees Fahrenheit, then cooling it quickly with cold air ventilation. Known as the “original French tumblers", Duralex Glasses are timeless icons of designs. Since their founding, Duralex has produced all of their products in La Chapelle-Saint-Mesmin, in the heart of France.
The original Duralex Picardie is the quintessential French bistro glass and has been copied by numerous drinking glass manufacturers. The Picardie is used throughout France in cafes and is the primary tumbler in French homes.
