This refined set of French glassware will add a very French touch to your table setting and for wine tastings. They are made in very resistant, durable and easy to clean glass (dishwasher safe).
The Versailles design of these wine glasses was inspired by the Hall of Mirrors of Versailles palace. The pattern on the glasses reproduces the delicate and sophisticated carvings above the mirrors. The scallop shell completes this royal design as it was an emblem of the French knights.
Remind that wine glasses have a smaller capacity than drinking glasses. As the flavor of wine deteriorates when exposed to oxygen, it is recommended to serve only 3 to 4 onces of wine. This is why wine glasses are smaller, now you know!
For a full Versailles drinkware, combine the Versailles wine glasses with the Versailles drinking glasses.
