Antique Wine Glass, Mouth-Blown, 1900s, France, 19 cm

About the Item

A beautiful antique, green coloured wine glass. At the turn of the 20th century, the French culture of fine dining and socialising flourished, leading to the emergence of a symbol of French epicurean culture: the aperitif glass. These glasses not only epitomise an era of refined taste, but also bear witness to a time when the art of the aperitif was celebrated as a social ritual. The glasses from France around 1900 were not just simple drinking vessels, but true works of art that appealed to the senses. They were made from the finest crystal or glass and were characterised by their delicate shapes, filigree decorations and elegant details. These glasses were not only functional vessels, but also an expression of the refined taste and aesthetics of their owners. A characteristic feature of glasses from this period was their variety of shapes and designs. In addition, glasses played an important role in French society around 1900. They were indispensable companions at social gatherings, elegant receptions and festive occasions. The aperitif ritual was not only an opportunity to prepare the palate for the culinary delights to come, but also a time for socialising and relaxation. Today, glasses from France around 1900 are coveted collector's items and symbols of the luxurious French lifestyle. They remind us of a time when pleasure and elegance went hand in hand and the ritual of the aperitif was an art form. These glasses are not just objects of the past, but timeless testaments to an era of good taste and the fine art of living.
