Bicos - High Ball Glass
Hand-crafted High Ball glasses from the Bicos collection of the Portuguese manufacturer Vista Alegre. For a light and fresh summer table! The first known reference to these glasses known as “biquinhos” (spikes) is from a catalogue of the Nova Fábrica de Vidros Marinha Grande (New Marinha Grande Glass Factory) – Ivima, 1901. This type of glass, set in the universe of diamond-tip manufacturing, was produced in the nineteenth century, through manual cutting techniques. It’s curious to know that in the first quarter of the twentieth century it was considered old-fashioned and today it is so fashionable! Sold in sets of 4.
Available in the following colours:
Dia7,5 x H14 cm, 330 ml
