A rare and fine set of eight circa 1850 English hand-blown and cut wine glasses executed in a rich and unusual teal/emerald green glass. The glasses feature flute-cut trumpet bowls and knopped airtrap and panel-cut stems. The foot has a polished pontil.
These lovely stems stand 5 1/4" high and measure 2 5/8" in diameter across the opening, 2 5/8" diameter across the foot. All eight are in extraordinarily good condition. There are no chips, cracks or regrinds and there is no cloudiness or staining. The glass has a wonderful brilliance and clarity. So very rare to find a set of eight and especially in this condition!
