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:

      I purchased these as a gift for someone, then bought a pair for myself after I saw how great they were in person. I use them exclusively now and need to get more to replace my stemware! They're perfectly fine in the dishwasher and fit all sizes of hands, even clumsy ones. I love the green hue! They hold a great volume of water for a bedside glass and don't knock over easily when you slap the snooze button in the morning.

        I sent this as a gift, and my friend loved it! She said that it was beautifully wrapped and presented which is something that I worry about when shopping online. She loved how different each glass is and that they are not too delicate!

        Comments about Recycled Wine Glasses:

        The glasses have a greenish tint. The glass is thick and very heavy. The glasses weigh about 16oz each. I like the sturdy/durability of the glass. However I have a normal female hand size and find a glass difficult to handle with one hand, especially with the heavy weight of the glass. At times I have to use two hands on the glass and look like I'm drinking from a kid's "sippy cup". I do love the glasses for their uniqueness. I use the glasses nightly because of the fact that they are not going to be knocked over easily like a regular wine glass. (I just look funny drinking wine with two hands clasping the glass)

            I saw these online and asked for a set for Christmas. I loved them so much that I recently bought two sets and a set of the beer glasses to give with wine and beer as gifts to some friends who helped us with a big yard project. They loved them as much as I do. The color is so pretty and I like using them for wine on the porch with my husband as our special glasses for just us.

              I will feel safe using them on the back deck as the weight is great and they will be quite a conversation piece.

              Comments about Recycled Wine Glasses:

              I ordered 3 sets of two, so they are all slightly different sizes, but since they're handmade, that's acceptable. They are a bit larger and heavier than I thought, but the smaller ones fit my and other small hands and the larger ones will be perfect for the larger hands that want a drink. The green tinting from the recycled glass is a nice look. They will be useful as drink glasses as well as dessert vessels.
