This is a fine pair of vintage Edinburgh Crystal slender glasses or champagne flutes. Ideal for sipping bubbly winter wines.
The Star of Edinburgh pattern is a classic one, first introduced by Edinburgh Crystal in 1948.
This is a matching pair of tall champagne glasses or flutes. They are in perfect condition with no damage - indeed, they look just as if they have never been used.
They measure as follows: 6 1/4 inches in height. The rim has a diameter of 2 1/2 inches. The foot is 2 3/4 inches. When tapped they have a beautiful ring, which is a mark of quality. They do not have an etched inscription on the base - but they probably had a paper label on them originally, now not present.
I have taken lots of photographs for your inspection.
I am listing the set here at a very fair £35 for the pair, UK Postage will be with Royal Mail Recorded post. This will cost £4.95 and applied to your order at the checkout.
The Edinburgh and Leith Flint Glassworks was established in the 1860s at Leith Walk Glassworks and later at Norton Park in Edinburgh.
In 1921 the glassworks became part of Webbs Crystal Glass Company.
In 1955, The Edinburgh and Leith Glassworks became Edinburgh Crystal, and the next decade saw further expansion and eventually the demolition of the old glassworks at Norton Park and new premises at Penicuik 10 miles south of Edinburgh.
Edinburgh Crystal went into administration in July 2006. Although the brand was taken over by the Waterford / Wedgwood Group the factory no longer exists and the brand is now discontinued.
Excellent customer service, glasses in superb condition. Informed of date of posting and expected arrival. Well packaged, Highly delighted with the service.
