  • Set of Ten 18th C. Champagne Flutes

    Cheers to welcoming friends!
    This is a beautiful set of ten large (8.5inches tall) English mid-18th century clear champagne flutes. The funnel-shaped bowls are set upon a tubular stem rising from a circular foot. On the bottom of the foot is a pontil mark (see images). The mark is the scar where the pontil was broken from the hand-blown glass. This indicates that the glass was blown freehand as it was in the 18th century.
