Classic Venetian Glass Goblet Copied

This 9½-inch goblet with a figural stem is an almost identical copy of vintage pieces. The figural swan and knobs on the stem are gold flecked clear crystal; the base and bowl are deep ruby.

Generally, figures in better vintage goblets have applied glass eyes made of two or more contrasting colors of glass. Eyes in this swan are simply tooled from the glass that forms the head; the eyes are not applied. Other new goblets in this style have dolphin figures in the stem. These goblets sold for around $100 each.
