I bought these stems a long time ago and they have been sitting on a shelf at eye level in front of me in my ‘office’. I didn’t know where to start with them to ID them and, in my opinion, the stems looked like others.
I figured if I waited long enough I would see them on some website and that is what happened.
Someone IDed them on Facebook as Radiant Ruby – line #7685 – from Morgantown Glass. The stems the person had were a different shape – wine glass if I recall correctly – but the details were pretty darned similar.
I figure that I am about 80% sure that these are from the Radiant line. If so, they were produced in the 1970s.
This set of five cut glasses and matching decanter was likely produced around the mid 20th Century, but that is really just a guess on my part. The label on it reads that it was made in Czechoslovakia so that dates the set to the early 1990s at the latest.
The photos do not do this set justice. It was very difficult to capture the true colours.
The glass is an amber or topaz with a red stain. The flowers and foliage are cut to the amber. The red has darker undertones, it is not crimson or scarlet. You can see the amber in the neck and in the stopper. There are lots of gilt/gold decorations on both the decanter and the tumblers. It truly is a lovely set.
I saw something similar online attributed as Egermann Glass, but I have no idea if this is Egermann or even Egermann style.
