To some people, all pieces of crystal are the same. A little higher or lower, a little wider or thinner to them it makes no real difference.
No so to the crystal maven. Such thoughts are heresy to someone who enjoys swirling wine or champagne in a fine, hand-blown crystal glass. If Waterford Kildare, Lenox Monroe Crystal, and Baccarat Massena brings a smile to your face, then you’re the person we’re talking to. You need to know which pieces are needed for which meals and which are just “extras”.
The following is a list of the common piece types which tend to be the same across patterns and brands. If you have these then you’re well on your way to having a “full” pattern.
|Main Crystal Pieces:|
|Double Hold Fashioned|
|Red Wine Goblet|
|White Wine Goblet|
