What are these glasses? How do I describe them?
« on: June 22, 2007, 12:43:14 AM »
These glasses Ive had for a while and I wanted to list them on ebay but I have no idea where they are from or the first thing to describe them. Ive tried putting in various terms as a search but with the thousands of glasses around, its virtually a no go.

They are 13cm high, 7cm across the rim. They are a diamond design with the colour applied to them. I dont have a set, as in I have one red, one blue and 5 yellow. I saw something similar on ebay but it seemed the one I saw had the colour right through, not applied. Any help with this would be welcome as I dont want to mislead anyone when I do list them...even what drink they are used for would be great...

They also come without the colour staining. I saw two in a charity shop in Keswick today (priced at 59p each) so not considered by them to be high value items at least in the clear.
