Details: The Lismore Nouveau Stemless Deep Red Wine 16 oz, Pr, is a variation of the new Lismore Nouveau pattern. The cuts in the new stemless glass are designed to appeal to a casual market. These glasses are a fun and functional stemless design that incorporates the classic Lismore cuts with a unique twist.Lismore is the definitive, classic pattern everyone thinks of when they think of Waterford crystal. Lismore Nouveau streamlines the heavier, more traditional Lismore wine glasses with bowls that curve directly out of the long pulled stem. Taking the contemporary look one step further are these new stemless crystal glasses that fit beautifully in the palm of the hand. The two in this pair, generously sized at 16 ounces to increase breathing space, are specifically designed for the enjoyment of complex red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The stemless form induces a more casual approach to wine appreciation, and certainly provokes conversation.
Handsomely boxed, this pair makes an inspired gift for a couple beginning to build a collection. Like all fine crystal, these wine glasses should be washed by hand in moderately hot, soapy water, then rinsed and dried thoroughly to protect the porous surface from harsh detergents. A crystal glass should be stored upright, not on its delicate rim, to ensure longevity for generations to come. --Ann Bieri
Ogham is the earliest written form of Primitive Irish, the oldest of the Gaelic languages. Ogham was first used in Ireland and parts of England, Scotland and Wales between the 2nd and 6th centuries. Though its actual origins remain a mystery today, it is believed the Celts desired a cryptic alphabet that could not be deciphered by Roman Britain.
Represented as a series of perpendicular and intersecting lines, this ancient script is thought to be influenced by the Latin alphabet using 20 characters. It is most commonly written vertically and is read from bottom to top. When presented horizontally, it is read from left to right.
