Glasses with Class: Gorgeous Etched Glassware

I'm about to move into my first home with my lovely fella, and it's all very exciting indeed. Naturally, when shopping for pretty things for our new place, I'm a bit obsessed with finding some gorgeous glassware (I mean, have you seen my other Glasses with Class pieces?) and I'm falling increasingly in love with etched glasses.

Here are some of the prettiest I've found - let's start with:


Wine Glasses



Call me old-fashioned, but nothing beats floral etched wine glasses for me, even if they do come from a company called Shabby Chic (bleurgh). This set of four is HALF PRICE at just £25 from House of Fraser, and they also do some fetching matching highball glasses (also on offer!) too.


Looking for a less expensive option? Try these GreenGate Grey Etched wine glasses for £8.50 each from OCCA.



The Provence etched wine glasses by Bohemia are even better value - just £29.66 for 6 from Amazon - and they're a little bit less flouncy too.



For full on flounce that doesn't break the bank, my money is on John Lewis' Maison Flora etched wine glasses at just £6 each. They also do etched flutes for the same price - but if these don't float your boat there's more flutes at the bottom of this post.


I think - THINK! - I've found my favourite wine glasses, though. It's these Reims etched wine glasses from Culture Vulture Direct for £6.50 each. They're just so fancy-looking - I'd feel pretty regal sipping a glass of vino out of these.


Tumblers


Ooh, look! LSA have made some Christmassy etched tumblers! I love them so much - imagine pouring yourself a snowball in one of those? They're £25 for four from Amara.



For more year-round etched goodness, I just adore these horse etched whisky tumblers from Jasmine Way. They're magical - although they are £30 for two so I'd probably only buy one pair... (boo!)


Lastly, everyone loves an etched owl tumbler, don't they? These Iittala Talka tumblers are a mighty £25 each from John Lewis. Worth it?


Flutes


Joy, joy, joy - look at these Flamant Prague etched flutes from OCCA home. Understated but oh-so elegant - I love them. They're £20.50 each though...!



A simpler, more subtle choice is the Villeroy & Boch etched floral flutes from House of Fraser. They're only £11.50 each, too.


Lastly, if you're going to go all out, you might as well go ALL OUT with these mega-decadent Retro Fizz 1890 Champagn Saucers from Urban Bar. They're a very non-decadent £16 a pair too - where do I sign up?

Which of these designs caught your eye? Tell us in the comments - or share any other beautiful glasses you've found...
