Waterford Crystal Fanlight Set of Two 5 oz Flutes

The inspiration for the Fanlight pattern came from the magnificent architecture of the Georgian period of 18th century Dublin, known as "The Age of Exuberance", when everything had not only to be functional but beautiful. The main motif in this delightful pair has been inspired by the Fanlight over the Dublin Doors of Merrion Square.

It was so designed to allow the light from within to pour out on to the street to light the way of the owners returning from their places of work and also provide a warm welcome to arriving guests.

Additional Information:
Measures: 8-1/2"H x 2-1/2"W (1.2 lbs). Each glass has a 5 oz capacity. Made of crystal. For indoor use. Made in Ireland.

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.
