  • Pattern:  Antique Amethyst (Discontinued)
  • Made in: Arques, France by Arc International (Luminarc)

  • Details:  This is a really nice pattern, originally sold by Luminarc and continued to be sold under the brand Cristal D'Arques-Durand starting 1990 until it was discontinued in 2008.  We should mention, these are the original stamped "France", later in the 2000's they were made in the USA.  The pattern is called "Antique Amethyst" and has a beautiful purple color.  It features a very intricate design with lots of cut diamonds and palms under triangular arches. They are pressed glass and embossed on the bottom with the word "France" as well as the numbers "22, 37 and 12" (one number under each cup).  There are also matching plates, and stemware for this pattern, we currently only carry the mugs, however, we have other pieces in the "Antique Clear" pattern if you're interested.

Arc International was founded in 1825 by a Frenchman called Alexander des Lyons de Noircarm in 1825 in the village of Arques in northern France.  From 1897 onward, the company was dominated by the Durand family, who eventually purchased the firm entirely in 1926. Today, the family continues to be the sole proprietors.  Through the years they have grown, they've invented different types of glass and expanded their lines and brands which include: Luminarc (launched in 1948) and the oldest brand currently sold by Arc (however now made in USA), Arcoroc (launched in 1963), Cristal d'Arques (launched in Europe in 1968), Chef & Sommelier (launched in 2008), and Arcopal (1958).  They have bought and sold many other brands like Pyrex (from 2005 - 2014) and even owned Mikasa from 2000-2008.
