Amboise Collection

La Rochère draws its inspiration from the past to create timeless objects, bearers of messages and narrators of history. The unique and neat style of the Amboise collection will find its place at your most elegant tables. Solid and delicate at the same time, it will make an impression during your dinners or your aperitifs, shining at every moment with its regal appearance.

The AMBOISE glass draws its inspiration from 15th century Venetian glasses, with a chalice-shaped bowl and a base decorated with almonds and peaks. The raised floral decoration is reminiscent of the Renaissance arabesque style, around the central design of the heart. The heart was chosen to depict affection, charm and fidelity. Heart of love, heart of friendship.

 

Amboise was the first Loire Valley Renaissance château, which was both the residence and school of princes and princesses, in particular Charles VIII, who was born there, Louise of Savoy and Francis I. It was also home to the Royal Court in the 15th and 16th centuries. Fascinated by the Italian culture he had discovered during his Italy campaigns, Charles VIII invited a number of Italian artists to Amboise in 1495, including Dominique de Cortone and Fra Giocondo.
