A set of six, cut-to-clear, coloured crystal wine glasses by the renowned Belgian glass maker. Second-hand.

What's for sale?

This is a  set of six, cut-to-clear, crystal wine glasses in three colours. They are by the renowned Belgian glass maker Val St. Lambert and cut in their Esneux pattern, first introduced in 1950 and discontinued around 1962.

The Esneux pattern is an intricate mix of horizontal and vertical cuts. There are 18 long vertical cuts, each faceted vertically in two halves, like a leaf. Then two deep, horizontal cuts are made in parallel, across the vertical cuts in the lower part of the bowl. The result is a multi-faceted series of angles and shapes.

In contrast, the stems are are six-sided, plain and without notches. The feet are also plain. Each glass still has the Val St Lambert sticker, so they may be unused.

Cut-to clear describes the technique of layering coloured glass over clear glass and then cutting a pattern to reveal the clear glass beneath.
