What's for sale?

This is a set of four, handmade, brandy glasses or "snifters" from Holmegaard's "Princess" range. They're also known as balloon or tulip glasses due to their shape, and are a good choice for gin. The Princess design is 60 years old and still a great example of Scandinavian design. 

For brandy and cognac, the rounded bottom allows the glass to be cupped which warms the liquid. The large surface area aids evaporation and the narrow top keeps the aroma inside. Ideally, snifters should only be filled partly, such that when laid on their side, they don't spill.

The Princess range, with a conical stem and captured bubble, was designed by Danish architect Bent Severin in 1957 and manufactured between 1958 and 1995. The range includes a variety of sizes and profiles, all with the same modern look. These brandy glasses have a beautifully-rounded bowl and complement the rest of the range. The form number is etched into the base of each glass.

Please note that these are in clear glass. The smoked appearance of the stems in our photographs is reflection.
