5212 A Set of Six Victorian Wine Goblets


Click on the images to see more detail

This is a wonderful set of practical wine goblets.  They are late 19th century and have cylindrical bowls with rounded lower sections.  The stems and the lower part of the bowls are panel- or slice-cut and they rest on low conical feet.

The panel-cutting refracts light to give a good sight of the colour and clarity of the wine inside, and importantly they hold a good measure of wine.   The left-hand glass in the second image has 250 cl. of wine in it - the same as many hotels and eateries serve as a 'large glass'.

They are in excellent condition without any cracks, chips or restorations and are very fit for purpose.

Date: c.1880-1900

Dimensions: 6.6", 24.4 cm. high
