A set of six tall, clear, cut lead crystal wine or hock glasses. Second-hand.
What's for sale?
This is a set of six tall, cut lead crystal hock wine glasses by Nachtman, the highly-regarded Bavarian manufacturer.
Traube (grape) is a pattern of grapes, leaves and geometric cuts that demonstrates the high quality work produced by Nachtmann's glass cutters. They're made of 24% lead crystal and have an intricate, faceted stem and star-cut foot.
At 20cm high, we think these hock glasses are the best of the range. The bowl is shaped to bring the best out of German white wine (Hock is an English term for such wines). Regardless of that, we think they make an elegant wine glass.
These are supplied in their original boxes.
Who made them and when?
Nachtmann is a long-established, German manufacturer of lead crystal, based in Weiden, Bavaria. The Traube pattern has been made for well over 70 years. That and the durability of their crystal, means that it's difficult to date precisely.
