What's for sale?
This is a high quality set of six tall, cut-to-clear, coloured, lead crystal wine or hock glasses. They're by Nachtmann, the highly-regarded German glass maker.
Cut-to clear describes the technique of layering coloured glass over clear glass and then cutting the pattern to reveal the clear glass beneath. This set has a very nice spread of colours.
Traube (grape) is a pattern of grapes, leaves and geometric cuts that demonstrates the high quality work produced by Nachtmann's glass cutters. They're made of 24% lead crystal, have a multi-faceted stem and star-cut foot. At just under 21cm high, we think these are the best of the Nachtmann range.
Who made them and when?
Nachtmann is a long-established, German manufacturer of lead crystal, and are based in Weiden, Bavaria. The Traube pattern has been made for well over 70 years. That and the durability of their crystal, means that it's difficult to date any set precisely.
