This summer, clients have been asking for colorful stemware, and I've been sourcing fast to keep up. It's become one of my favorite collecting projects.
The rose champagne coupes (all-matching) have grown to over 100, and there's now 250+ vintage chunky goblets in a rainbow of colors from pale pink, aqua, and yellow to dark blues, purple, and black.
Most of the glasses are from the Bohemian/Colonial Revival heyday of the 60s-70s. It makes sense that these are popular right now since we're experiencing a similar kind of revival. Many of the patterns are reproduced from classic Victorian glass designs with square and pentagonal feet and multi-paneled goblets. I get lucky sometimes and find a nice patch of glasses from the 1890s. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise--Victorians loved color. Most of the colorful goblet collection is from the mid-20th century.
Here's a look at the collection and some weddings and events where the glasses have been featured this summer.
