Waterford Crystal Lismore Essence Set of Six 12 oz Champagne Saucers

A more modern interpretation of the signature Lismore pattern, Lismore Essence features long stemmed glassware detailed with understated diamond and wedge cuts. Although crisply contemporary, this Essence Champagne Saucer features the broad rim and shallow depth first created in the 19th century to prevent chorus girls from getting the hiccups. It serves as a stunning canvas for the Lismore Essence pattern.

Care Instructions:
Fine crystal should be hand washed separately in warm soapy water, rinsed thoroughly and dried with lint-free cloth. When washing and drying stemware, do not twist the bowl in the opposite direction to the stem as this can cause damage. We do not recommend using a dishwasher to clean your crystal as it can dull and damage the surface. Avoid pouring iced liquids or very hot water into crystal as extreme temperatures can crack or break your crystal. The finely made rims are the most fragile part of your crystal glass. Do not turn upside down while drying or storing.

Wine Glass Types

Red Wine Glass: A red wine glass displays a fuller, rounder bowl than most glasses. This allows you to dip your nose into the glass to experience the wine's aroma. The bulbous setting of the glass allows the bouquet to aerate and develop while the longer stem provides the ability to swish the glass.

White Wine Glass: These glasses showcase more of a U-shape than red wine glasses. This allows a more concentrated aroma (whites are often not as pungent as reds) while also maintaining cool temperature.

Sparkling Wine Glass: The sparkling wine glass is most commonly known as a flute. This is because of its long, thin shape. This shaping helps the wine retain its carbonation and preserve flavoring.

Dessert Wine Glass: The dessert wine glass is the smallest type. Its short stem and glass are contrasted with a wide bouquet. Dessert wines have the highest concentration of alcohol, making their short stature a necessity. Finally, the wide bouquet allows the wine to aerate and develop properly overtime.
