Glass height: 125mm (set of two)

From the golden age of elegance and glamour – 1044 is a mid century design classic created in 1954. The distinctive twisted stem whispers timeless sophistication.

The Burgunder glass is traditionally used for serving red wine- (particularly Burgundy). The wide balloon shape aerates the wine and captures the complex aromatics of the pinot noir grape. The shape also directs the wine to the tip of the tongue which accentuates sweeter tastes to cut the acidity of the grape.

Formed from molten glass heated to 1200 degrees, mouth blown and finished by hand these are particularly high quality glasses with a finish that sets them apart from mass produced machine glass.

In order to preserve the brilliance and lustre of handmade glass we recommend washing by hand.

More about the Company- Von Poschinger

Founded in 1568, Von Poschinger is Germany’s oldest glassworks. The Poschinger family have nurtured and protected their glass making knowledge and expertise for 450 years.

A team of four glassblowers work on each piece, keeping the glass at the required 1200 degree temperature. Once completed, the glass is cooled and then finishing touches are added before being tested for quality. Only perfect pieces are signed with the Von Poschinger seal.

It takes 10 years to learn the techniques of mouth blown glass. It is estimated that only 500 people in Germany have the skills. To keep the technique alive, Von Poschinger glassworks became a member of the Intangible Cultural Heritage Directory in 2015.

Perhaps the secret to the company’s longevity is this commitment to quality and an unwillingness to expand to an industrial size. Von Poschinger still only has 25 employees.
