Smoked Glass

Somewhere along the line, I picked up a collection of smoked glass. I didn’t even know I was doing it. Some pieces I have multiples, some pieces I only have one. I mentioned in an earlier post that I still have room for one more bowl or tablecloth, but unfortunately, that does not stand true for glasses. I once took a count of all drinking vessels—mind you, this includes coffee cups, pint glasses, champagne flutes, and everything in-between—and while I won’t tell you the number, it is a 3 digit number. So as you can imagine, my cabinets allocated to drinking glasses are very, very full, but in my defense, the majority of them were purchased at thrift stores, for a dollar or less per glass, and some of them are truly tiny. So at least there’s that.

My smoked glass collection, from left to right: tall vase; small snifter (1 of 2); tall drinking glass with gold motif (circa 1970s, 1 of 4); aperitif glasses (circa 1970s, 1 of 4); Holmegaard smoked glass vase/martini pitcher (circa 1960s); tiny snifter (1 of 6); Italian champagne coupes (circa 1970s, 1 of 8); water goblets (1 of 5); smoked glass base cups (circa 1970s, 1 of 5); smoked glass vase.
