These wines, cut in Strawberry Diamond and fan are exceptional. Each stem is cased in deep cranberry glass and cut back to the clear portion. While most stems like this have clear bottoms, the glass maker went the extra mile and used color to clear bases as well! While many companies cut this design, it’s likely these were done by an earlier company like Dorflinger, Hawkes or even Boston & Sandwich. It’s difficult to accurately capture colored glass by camera, but these stems are the deep cranberry typically associated with American cut glass.
The Strawberry Diamond pattern consists of a crosscutting of deeper and shallower miters. The deeper ones frame a section of four diamonds. These diamonds shimmer and really pop with the cut-to-clear effect. The stems are fluted and the bases rayed.
It’s estimated that only 1-5% of American Brilliant Cut Glass was done in color. I can also estimate that stems with colored bottoms probably make up 5% of the colored stem market. So these stems are a true rarity. The deep cranberry color is stunning and will make your cabinets pop. I have 8 of these stems and will offer quantity discounts. Price is per stem.
