I love these stems cut in Straus’s Imperial pattern – the form is beautiful and must have been quite difficult to acheive. Cut in their Imperial pattern, Straus adapted the design perfectly to the shape. Please note the remarkable amount of detail just to the stem of the piece.
The Imperial pattern is a design composed of alternating panels of crosshatching and a hobstar with a fanned center. Each field is flanked on the lower portion with notched cutting while the fans flank the upper portion. The stem of the sherry is made up of three portions of glass which are each cut with multiple facets. The center knob and juxtaposition of all the components really stands out. The base is finished with a 12-point, clear-buttoned hobstar. It’s also worth noting that the mouth of the goblet flairs.
The stems are in perfect condition with the original rim. They are wood-wheel polished to perfection and measure 4 1/2″ tall and just over 2 1/8″″ across the base. I have 7 stems. Price is $45 each with quantity discounts available!
