Libbey Rock Sharpe Metropolis Blue Mediterranean Glass Water Goblets
Product Description And Additional Pictures
We recently acquired a set of 10 Libbey/Rock Sharpe Metropolis Blue (Mediterranean) glass goblets from an estate of a long-time antiques dealer. So why, we wondered, would an antique dealer possess such a beautiful set of modern glass goblets? Because this attractive glass pattern was only manufactured from 2006 to 2009, and are incredibly hard to find! Beautiful and unique, these 5-ball cobalt-stemmed goblets / wine glasses have clear crystal bowls. This attractive glass pattern was only manufactured from 2006 to 2009 and are incredibly hard to find. The goblets have cobalt stems which consist of five balls placed atop each other in graduated sizes, with the smallest ball against the bowl and the largest at the base. As our viewers undoubtedly know, the Libbey Glass Company, during the course of its long history, has produced some amazing works of art that function as barware! These lovely glasses are no exception. We are particularly fond of the way that the balls on the stems catch and reflect the light -- please see our photographs for examples of the lovely stems, especially picture #5 below which really pops in the light!
These glasses are unusually large, standing 8" tall, with a bowl diameter of 2-7/8" and a base diameter of 3-2/8". They are in excellent condition, with no nicks, chips or cracks, no scratches on the clear bowls, and with no discoloration to any of the lovely and uncommon cobalt stems. We like pairing these glasses with some of the sturdier English porcelain and pottery-based dinnerware. These glasses will truly compliment your set of flow blue or English ironstone!
