Timeless. Beautiful. Unbeatable: The classic French Picardie glass tumblers.

Extremely robust tempered glass, pleasingly inexpensive.

Pastis, red wine, water, soft drinks, juice and much more: These Picardie glass tumblers are used in French bars, bistros and cafés to serve all kinds of drinks. Developed in the 1950s, the tumblers have achieved cult status. And they are impressive proof that beautiful objects needn’t cost a fortune. 
As safe as a windscreen: 2.5 times more resistant to breakage than conventional glasses. 
We put them to the test: Even when dropped from 150cm (4ft9”), these glasses won’t splinter. And should one break, it fragments like safety glass into small bits with no sharp edges that can cause injury.
The secret lies in original tempered glass by Duralex/France.
Seamlessly pressed and immediately tempered in hollow moulds at 700°C, the glass surface cools rapidly and becomes exceptionally hard. This makes the tempered glass very hardwearing and perfect for hot and cold drinks. It is also suitable for the microwave and can be easily washed in the dishwasher.
With thick, faceted sides that are easy to grip, a softly rounded rim and solid base. They're a perfect example of the best possible design for everyday use. Each glass measures 8.7cm (3 2/5”) in diameter, is 9cm (3 1/2”) in height, holds up to 250ml (8.7 oz), and weighs 207g (7.3 oz).
