10oz Inverness Crystal Engraved Wine Glass
This Crystal Engraved Wine Glass shouts class and elegance. The lead content also provides a much higher index of light refraction than normal glass, and consequently much greater “sparkle.” This piece has a brilliant, silvery appearance and a ringing clink, compared to the lesser quality of ordinary glass.
Bob’s Locks master engravers give you the choice to scribe a logo or personal message onto the panel of this Crystal Wine Glass. This personal touch turns the Engraved Wine Glass into a premium individualistic gift for that someone special.
Mass production of these types of glasses dates back to the 1600s. George Ravenscroft (1618–1681) was the first to produce clear lead crystal glassware on an industrial scale. The son of a merchant with close ties to Venice, Ravenscroft had the cultural and financial resources necessary to revolutionise the glass trade, setting the basis from which England overtook Venice and Bohemia as the centre of the glass industry in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
