Glass From The Past

Handmade in Colombia from recycled glass, these substantial stemless wine glasses will add an interesting twist to any glass of wine. Sturdy and strong, the thick glass has a slight green hue that comes from a tint originally added to lessen the sun's glare. Beautiful and interesting, these stemless wine glasses are an uncommon take on a stylish design.

Various pieces of plain and printed bottles are salvaged to make these glasses. Evidence of the bottles'original logos and lettering may appear in the form of black and white flecks. These subtle spots cannot be prevented. Also due to the hand-crafted process, there may be a slight variation in sizing and the texture of each item will differ. Air bubbles and small "imperfections" add individual charm to each one-of-a-kind piece! Sold as a set of 2. Featured on CNN Money and the Today Show.

Comments about Recycled Wine Glasses:

Love these glasses, but hey are a little too big for both mine and my husband's taste. They are a stretch to hold in one hand, and I am tall! If it's not too late, I will be returning them. :(

    These are great if you're looking for something that's unique and not necessarily "formal." I love them because they look cool and I don't really care about being formal. They also fit a lot of liquid in them.

      Comments about Recycled Wine Glasses:

      These are lovely glasses, which remind me of the green glasses you see at many restaurants in Mexico. There are bubbles and swirls and other "imperfections" that are part of being handblown, occasional color streaks, and differences in the size of each glass.

      I think these characteristics make them charming. I have small hands, and don't find the glasses too large. They seem quite sturdy to me and I know they will become a favorite at our house - for more than wine.

      Comments about Recycled Wine Glasses:

      Very interesting and unique. Feels nice and sturdy in hand. Has the look and feel of a custom, individual, hand-made glass. The glass has a light-greenish tent which nicely compliments the color of red wine. If you're looking for a perfect match, this isn't for you. But if you want something different than you would see in a restaurant or as a guest at someone else's house, this is for you.

        My fiance loved these as a Christmas present. Easy to hold, each one slightly varries in size and shape, you can definately tell they are handmade. Such a cool gift idea!

        Comments about Recycled Wine Glasses:

        I've had at least two of these on hand in the house over the years. They are heavy - which I like, since I tend to topple stemmed glasses. I use them as daily water glasses, and I love that they double as wine glasses. Replacing a set over the years and they definitely were sized differently, but still make a nice set. They aren't as easy to scoop up as thinner glasses (though in theory therefore better chance of longevity). I can't imagine going without these. Am now replacing 3 that have been broken over time...any chance I can get a klutz discount on my next order?

          I saw these in a specialty store and bought all they had, then waited and asked and waited for them to get more. I hunted them down and found them myself for the same price! I was so excited, as my daughter LOVES them and wanted a whole set. So she now has 9 (an extra just in case)and she is so proud of them. They came so very carefully wrapped and so quickly. I'm a very happy customer.
