Vintage pair of hand-blown GIBSON CRYSTAL cobalt blue sapphire fluted champagne toasting flutes with clear stemware bases in the "Colonial" pattern. Unique and gorgeous color of a violet cobalt blue sapphire (not violet, not blue, not sapphire). Excellent condition with no chips, cracks or other damage to note. (c. 1960s) This pattern and color was discontinued in 1999.
This pair of vintage colored stemware were displayed in an illuminated china cabinet at an estate. Absolutely stunning and would make a nice addition to a vintage stemware collection or for use for a romantic dinner for two.
Each vintage stemware champagne cobalt blue toasting flute measures 9" tall, 2-1/2" wide at the top of the bowl, the bowl itself measures nearly 5-1/8" deep and has a plain clear base. One bubble is noted on one of the stems, another smaller bubble is noted within the bowl itself. These are not flaws, but authenticate that these flutes were hand-blown.
