8 Handmade, Vintage, Bohemian Glass/Crystal Cased Cut-To-Clear Wine Glasses. In excellent pre-owned vintage condition with careful use and normal wear, but no chips, cracks or scratches. They are approximately 8.5" tall; 31/4" diameter; hold 8 oz. These were handmade in the Czech Republic famous for producing Bohemian Glass which is often called Bohemian Crystal. All crystal is made of GLASS.Although all crystal is glass all glass is not crystal. Before glass can be designated as crystal it must meet the lead inclusion standard set in the country of its origin. Country sets their own percentage of lead to be contained in glass before it can be labeled crystal. So, crystal from England may have a different amount of lead than crystal from France, etc.
Bohemian Crystal meets the standards for lead set in its country of origin, but it may not meet the standard for lead set by Ireland, France etc. And should be valued by comparison to crystal from the country where it wa made. The color of these wine glasses is a rich deep cranberry/burgundy (not a plum or purple color).
The bowl cutwork design contains grapes, vines, leaves and radiant lines called crystal star shapes. The stems have alternating dash and cross cuts on the 6 edges. You can see bubbles and striations in the stem indicating they are hand made. The base has reverse cut and etched diamonds. They must be wrapped carefully and the wrapping securely closed.
