Gold And Rust
Vintage Handblown Sweetheart Glasses
There is nothing like hand blown vintage glasses. This gorgeous set has sweet starburst etchings, and are perfect for an evening cocktails with friends. These are probably from the 50s or 60s, but could be earlier. We think this is a martini glass, but some say they are champagne coupes. Either way, cheers friends!
How can we tell they are handblown? They all have a Pontil.
A pontil mark or punt mark is the scar where the pontil, punty or punt was broken from a work of blown glass. The presence of such a scar indicates that a glass bottle or bowl was blown freehand, while the absence of a punt mark suggests either that the mark has been obliterated or that the work was mold-blown.
