Carnival Glass made in Argentina
Back in 1882 there was not even one company that produced glass jars in the
country, and the importation terms were guided by extremely high standards,
making it impossible to achieve to small and medium conserve producers and
many other industries in need of these sort of containers. There had been
small and medium glass items producers who had gone bankruptcy, leaving many
warehouses abandoned including all the machinery left behind.
It was Leon Rigolleau the man of the hour. He bought all those warehouses
including the machines and leftovers, and began to produce glass jars in a
location nearby downtown BA. The company was christened La Nacional- the
National-. Soon they expanded as Mr. Rigolleau's nephew Gastón Fourvel
Rigolleau enters the business. The foremost important decision taken by the
Rigolleau family, a turning point within the national glass industry, was to
bring from France and Belgium specialized glass artisans to work with them .
In 1908 Cristalerias Rigolleau SA relocates in Berazategui, preserving the
downtown building as headquarter offices. It was then when a gifted Belgium
artisan arrived to Argentina to work at Rigolleau. Mr J.L. Humier was
Rigolleau's Artisan in chief. This was a family craft, so soon, several
members of the Humier family were to be running the day to day work at
Rigolleau soon became South America's most important crystal making company,
and one of the world's greatest. At the same time Rigolleau's prestige grew
all over the world, the company began to grow in terms of quantity
production, and to industrialize and mechanize more and more the productive
process. However, unlike the general trend, Rigolleau preserved an Artistic
Section of fully hand crafted high quality, great design items. Many of
these items were taken to world wide museums for their innovative design and
