The goblets of these hock glasses gleam in their wonderful colours. They can be used as wine or water glasses. The attention given to detail in the cutting process as facet cutting, ball cutting and diamond cutting are what makes this classic line from the year 1928 into one of the most coveted creations in crystal glass craftsmanship.
The reputation of Tommy is based on a legendary dinner in the year 1938 held in the Hall of Mirrors in the Chateau de Versailles on the occasion of a visit by King George VI; each of the places at the table for guests was set with eleven glasses from the “Tommy” series. The production of these glasses still goes on today and each glass takes ten days to make; ten glassblowers are needed to create the shape and five cutters are required to complete the decoration.
