Exceptional Amber Cut to Clear Champagne Flutes Straus?
These extremely unusual stems were cut in a variation of the Persian design in amber cut to clear. These may have been cut by L. Straus as this stem type was done by them along with some cut to clear stemware along with this type of hobstar base. While there appears to be some blue/green in the photo, it’s only a reflection – these are a yellowish/gold/amber.
The Persian design extends on the lower bout of the bowl of the flut. A lapidary knob sits below that along with a flutted and notched, air-trap stem. The bases are covered in a clear center hobstar.
The stems are in perfect condition and measure 6 3/4″ tall and 2 3/4″ wide. Price is $800 for the pair or $425 each.
