moreA magnificent Cristal Martin Bénito, Jardiniere (planter) in true crystal. Handmade and entirely hand carved in the Bénito workshops in France. French bronze frame inlaid 24 karat gold. Not only could you put a few small flowers in it next to the bed in your guest room, it would also be wonderful filled with chocolates. Of course, you could also put scented soap in it in your guest bathroom.
José Benito arrived in France in 1925 and, with his brother, set up a workshop to make perfume bottle stoppers.
His son Martin began his apprenticeship as a crystal cutter at the age of 14. Gifted and determined, he started his own company in 1952, training his father and his two brothers in crystal cutting. He developed the characteristic Cristal Benito 32-point star, seen on many creations, whatever their shape, their dimensions, even the colour of the crystal… because for certain pieces clarity is stretched to its very limits, reflections are broken up into a million fragments.
To create these astonishing pieces, he perfected both the grinding wheels used to cut crystal and the crystal sculpture technique, cutting the crystal as deeply as possible, to the very limit of its resistance, in order to enhance the lustre, the shine and the infinite reflections he imagined.
It was he who designed the first Cristal Benito creations, which achieved great success and quickly won over the international public, in particular, thanks to the world-renowned Napoleon III-style «Bar à liqueurs».
Beyond this exceptional range, Cristal Benito also accepts commissions for custom-made pieces. less
