Etched in Glass


Look what I found at HomeGoods! I couldn't believe my luck when I found these etched water goblets. Un verre d'amitie or "a glass of friendship!" There were ten of them, and I bought them all! (Glasses don't last long around my house!)

I soon realized that I now have a collection of etched glasses and objects like this wine glass above.
There are four of them and were a recent find in a cute little wine country shop.

At the same shop, I found these water glasses with the metal holder.

Here is a close up. I love these! They are a reproduction of glasses from the French bistro "Au Petit Tonneau" in 1908.

Looking around, I realized besides etched glasses, there are a few other pieces in my collection like this cheese dome, etched with the words "Le Jardins Botaniques du-Roy."

And my prized etched fleur de lis dome.

A water bottle etched with "familia" completes my new found collection.

Not everything in my collection is new. This vintage goblet is one of two bought at an estate sale years ago. I keep hoping someday I'll find more of these, but it's a long shot!

How do you feel about etched glass? Do you love it as much as I do?

I'm joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. Be sure to stop by and see more collages and mosaic inspiration.

Pin It!

Delores, I can't believe you found these glasses at HomeGoods. I saw these online a couple of months ago for $40 per glass! I loved them but knew there was no way I was paying that. All of your etched items are beautiful. Looks like I need to plan a trip to HomeGoods.
Hugs, Sherry

I love etched glass. Don't think I even have any, but I like it. Your fleur de lis dome is my fav.

Delores, what terrific finds! I have a set of the "Glass of Friendship" glasses that a friend gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago. I also gave a set of four of these in my recent Anniversary Giveback. You have some wonderful pieces! ~ Sarah

I'm telling you, girl, every time I come over here, I just DROOL.
Everything is so so pretty at your house...:)) and I would KILL for some of these glasses...yep...I surely would. They are AMAZING.
Now, I'm going to surf Ebay and see if I can get a collection of these started. :)

Great finds and such a pretty collection!

A Toile Tale said...

First of all, what beautiful photography! Those are hard shots to get, as I am learning. I have several of these pieces, too, but I might sell my soul for that stag goblet!

Oh Delores, these are fabulous, but that last one from the estate sale stole my heart! What a beauty! I would say that if I ever ran across any, I'd get them for you, but I'm afraid I would get them for myself (sooo selfish!) laurie

Katy Noelle said...

I'm not quite sure what I think, personally, about etched glass - I mean, if I would specifically collect it. It's awfully beautiful and I LOVE your collection!
