Comments

We have a near-matching pair of these glasses and I can honestly say we have never come across another example. The workmanship is superb and the form very unusual, the stem being one gather of glass with the pontil in the base of the bowl. Although the cutting and engravings are very 18th-century Boheiam in style, the overall form has an elegant French feel. Despite showing the glasses to a number of recognised experts in continental glass, we couldn't come up with a definitive manufacturer.
