These pieces are larger, but have the same pretty etching. The red is flashed on, not red glass.
I like the shape and weight of the stems and although I know this is irrelevant – they make the prettiest ‘ring’ when ‘pinged’.

Isn’t this pretty? I have not yet identified the etch. It’s been awhile since I picked up an unknown etch, but these three were so pretty. They used to have gold edges on the rim and base. Most of it is worn off now.
Don’t know why I often lean when taking photos!
You can see the detailing in the close up. I know that someone knows what these are. When I was photographing them I thought there was a signature on the one. I kept looking at it with my magnifying glass, but couldn’t quite tell what it was. I looked and turned the item and changed glasses, etc. trying to decipher the name or image.
Thank heavens there isn’t a video feed in my office. Turned out to be food stuck on the bottom of the glass! Sheesh.
I hope a little glass identifying angel reads this and tells me the history of this stem.
Picked this piece up at Around the Block (if you live in Toronto, this place is worth a look). It is a pretty pink with gilted etching.
I thought it would be easy to identify. I checked the gallery of a favoured site – the Everyday Glass Forum – to see if I could find it. I found the etch to be an unknown, although reference was made Lotus etches 890 and 891 being similiar.
I have a few servers. I find the differences in the shapes to be interesting – the handles show so many variations. Then you have the colours, the size, the shape. Seemingly alike, but not really.
This piece went to a colleague who makes the most superb cupcakes and who loves pink. I think it will look pretty on her table.
