Another nice sample of the city named collection is the Saint-Tropez from the remarkable French Riviera. The nice town located in a picturesque place. This was the favorite beach of Pablo Picasso and Robert Capa what was stated in the famous photo series of them. Luxury and the beautiful color of the sea is remarkable. That was what inspired the master to create this pattern. We usually make this pattern on colored crystals, as the beauty of the pearl-like bubbles makes the nicest play of the rainbow in these items. On the cobalt-blue hand made luxurious crystal from Varga Art Crystal you can see the colors of the blue sea “Côte d’Azur”. Mostly that is why people choose this pattern in that color but also in another colors the pattern is very unique. The pattern shows the elegance of the place combined with the sense of the sea and the song of the mermaids.
