Cristal Benito is the story of a passion, that of hand-carved crystal, to which three successive generations have brought their vision and style. Since 1952, José, Martin and Franck, current ruler and craftsman, have succeeded each other in the family workshop. Cristal Benito's creations are timeless and can be considered by some as true works of art; we must not forget, however, that these exceptional pieces remain objects designed to be used: vases, cups, planters, boxes and eggs with perfumes or jewels, caviar cellars, but also bottles and today wall appliques... The objects created by Cristal Benito are distinguished by a very wide variety of crystal size, from the most traditional (diamond, cabochon, 32-faceted star,...) to the most modern, made with perfect mastery and sometimes to the limit of the resistance of matter. The freehand size gives each piece its unique character, and the montage on precious bronze elements adapted to the chosen style of decoration - Classic, Louis XV, Empire, Art Deco or Contemporary - brings a perfect finish to this unusual craft production. Each piece in the Benito Crystal Collection thus becomes a rare piece, with its own history.
