We kindly suggest you read the whole description, because with it we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to guarantee the authenticity of our objects. Linear and essential table service composed of six drinking glasses; the glasses are enriched by a solid silver mount, executed by hand lathe in an excellent way, in fact, the upper edge is obtained by turning the silver plate on itself, and, towards the base, a sturdy step was created that underneath was then folded over the base of the glass itself; this was done to wisely reinforce the whole mount so that it is integral with the body of the glass; also aesthetically the glass has a sober, elegant and clean line. From the punch, stamped on the silver part, it can be seen that the glasses were made between 1980 and 1985 by the Florentine silversmith and craftsman Cecconi Valerio, his workshop was located in Bagno a Ripoli, on the outskirts of Florence (Italy), the firm closed around 2000; he specialized in making crystal objects assembled with silver; he researched unique, original and special crystals for his items, and executed the silver supports with art and technique, creating high-quality objects. Also for our glasses, artisan Cecconi wanted to use a particular crystal produced by the company R.C.R. (Royal Crystal Rock) of Colle Val d'Elsa (Tuscany, Italy), the glasses bear the company's trademark ground on the bottom; RCR Cristalleria Italiana was born in 1967 in the heart of Tuscany from an idea of a group of artisans who, with courage and talent, expressed the highest level of glass art; the company has distinguished itself to this day for the production of tableware, wine tasting, and home furnishings. Lead crystal has been produced in Italy for more than two centuries now, but RCR's technical evolution has led the company to offer an alternative to classic lead crystal through the production of Luxion®, a high-quality, innovative glass created with the purest raw materials and the industry's most advanced technologies. Luxion is a lead-free crystal endowed with qualities that make it the best crystal in the world for transparency, brilliance, and safety, both for food and for those who use it. This material represents an index of the highest quality for RCR Crystal glasses, including aesthetics thanks to its high refractive index and brilliance, with maximum ultraclear transparency. The almost total absence of color and maximum clarity, due to the highest quality raw materials, makes Luxion® the most transparent of all glassware materials on the market. The quality of this material ensures RCR products are perfect glasses for cocktail and beverage tastings, able to enhance the organoleptic qualities of spirits or wines, with a total absence of taste alteration. Measure diameter cm.6, height cm.19. The glasses are in good condition. For all our shipments we use special packaging materials (wooden crates, styrofoam, etc.) for maximum protection and safety of the objects.
