Set of 2 Crystal Water Goblets Gus Khrustalny Etched Russian Lead Crystal. I purchased these in Russia in the early 1990's & they've been in storage ever since! So, they're in perfect NEW condition, although vintage.
These glasses are magnificent & much heavier than those of modern day. This style was used by the royal families of the tsars and became very popular throughout Russia in 1960-1990. Height: 9 1/2" Diameter at the base: 3 1/4" Diameter at the top: 3 1/2" Holds: about 12 oz.
They're 24% lead crystal, prized for its durability & spectacular reflective properties.
These were handcrafted at the Maltsov Crystal Factory, Gus-Khrustalny, the oldest, most prestigious creator of luxury Russian crystal. Founded in 1756 on the Gus River, it took it's name in honor the town of Gus-Khrustalny & its district.
Please note that this crystal is CLEAR... the first photo doesn't do them justice. Please be sure to view all photos.
