Lenox Crystal, Stemware, Barware Review: Wine Glasses, Goblets, Flutes, Pitchers, Collections
Lenox stemware and barware department offers a broad selection of products that address nearly all conceivable drinkware needs, be it from the perspective of the host who strives to achieve aesthetic and atmospheric perfection, of a wine connoisseur, or a even of a barman working a shift.
Fine crystal section presents a range of glasses designed in classic rounded, fluted, or more geometrically adventurous shapes – square, oval, or otherwise. Etched patterns usually exhibit linear or floral motifs. Wine glasses tend to dispense with ornamentation – allowing the color of the beverage itself play its part without obstruction; variations include white or red wine dedicated, balloon types, flutes, and others.
Pitchers and decanters comprise an important segment for people who pay extra attention to Dionysus: resting wine in these containers for a short period of time before drinking allows the air to mix with the liquid and accentuate all the flavors and aromas.
Finally, such offerings as ice buckets,
shakers, standing corkscrews, and cocktail prep sets will allow to
make the job of serving and distributing drinks a much more classier
and thought out experience. Compare to Noritake, Mikasa, and Pfaltzgraff.
Let's take a closer look at some of the collections, patterns, and additional items Lenox include in their crystal category:
By far the largest crystal category, it comprises over two dozens of collections aimed to appeal to a wide range of design tastes. Shaped as flutes, goblets, or balloon, iced or traditional wine glasses, these containers display floral etchings (Bellina, Gardner, Chirp patterns), or linear patterns, either flowing and soft (Belle Boulevard, Debut Gold) or angular and sharp (Firelight, Downing Cuts, Ashley Avenue, and others).
A less formal type of stemware, Lenox wine glasses (Napa Valley Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Vintage Jewel, gold, platinum and other collections) can be effectively used in casual settings and events: the wine will taste the same, while the atmosphere can, if so desired, taste considerably lighter.
Other types of crystal drinkware include highball, martini, tumbler, old fashioned, shot, margarita, brandy and all purpose glasses. Some of the collection titles are Tuscany Classic, Marchesa Painted, Butterfly Meadow, and Tin Can Alley.
