A Pair of Georgian Glass Rinsers

A Pair of Georgian Glass Rinsers

20.00 35.00

This pair of late Georgian glass twin spouted rinsers are hand blown and facet cut around the base and measuring 10cms high; unfortunately one has a tiny chip to the rim (see photograph). At a Georgian dinner a wine rinser or cooler was placed in front of each guest and partially filled with cold water in order to rinse or cool your glass between courses (and therefore wines) - the stem of the glass would rest on the spout. Think of the washing up we could save if we reverted to this wonderful system; if you cannot be persuaded, they make fabulous bowls for a pretty, low floral arrangement.
