|This beautiful Bacchus Champagne Flute is 9 1/2" tall and holds 7 ounces of your favorite champagne. The Bacchus collection is an exquisite example of fine craftsmanship. Each piece is hand engraved and hand painted, with details engraved and painted separately in a difficult process that requires a different person for each detail. Champagne flutes have a tall, narrow shape which prolongs the chill and bubbles. The bowl is designed to help retain the carbonation in the beverage by reducing the surface are at the opening of the bowl.
All Bacchus glassware we offer is lead free crystal. Each piece of mouth-blown and hand-decorated crystal is produced individually in the European country of Romania. Crystal is the common term for colorless 24% lead glass that has a high refractive index and consequently is particularly brilliant. Today, the word is often used to describe any fine glass tableware, even if it does not contain lead, as is the case here. Lead crystal has the transparency and brilliance to allow wine to show its best colors.
