This exquisite pair of crystal glassware carries uncommonly refined vibes and stylised ancient Roman influences. Both glasses ring with a clear, pleasant tone that is characteristic to crystal glassware, bearing beautiful details such as the elegantly silhouetted stems and pressed satin animal head reliefs.
The Azure blue glass has a bowl that has a wide rim that gently tapers downwards into a rounded base, shaped similar to that of a Pousse Café glass. Supporting the bowl is the satined (frosted) pressed glass relief of the double rams head, the glass is finished with a 4-sided square stem.
The Amber orange glass also has a bowl with a wide rim, however, this bowl tapers sharply, forming a 'V' and shape that is classic to a Martini cocktail glass. The bowl is supported by a satined press relief of the double lion heads, the glass is finished with a faceted, staggered diamond stem.
Both pieces are of exceptional quality that is rare in design and versatile to suit a room with Contemporary, Post Modern or Modernist themes.
