These stunning stems are cut by Boston & Sandwich – the exact design is shown in their catalog. Each piece is cased with cranberry glass and cut back to the clear portion. While most stems like this have clear bottoms, they went the extra mile and used a color to clear base as well!
This modified hobnail cutting is an early design and polished to wood-wheel perfection. The cranberry color is quite deep and bright and shows extremely well. The stem has an air trap along with a lapidary knob just under the bowl. The bases are rayed.
Condition is perfect with the original annealed rims. Colored stems are easily the most desirable items in cut glass today and with examples like these, it’s apparent why they’re so popular. A stem like this can easily spruce up a cabinet with a touch of color. I have two. $425 each or combined discount.
