Just look at this set of early Eighteenth Century 'Toasting Glasses' - unearthed in Holland, and sold at Christie's for about 3,500 euros. Those stems are about 5 mm thick, and - some say - designed to be snapped between finger and thumb when the toast to the lady of the house had been drunk. All the more astounding that they have survived for not far short of 300 years.
Wouldn't they look GREAT on my dining table??? I want them!!! (pretty please?)
