Guide to Glassware


Lenox has collaborated with Victoria James, America’s youngest sommelier at 21, and partner and director of beverage at New York & Miami’s Michelin-starred COTE restaurants. Together, Lenox and James have created the Signature Series, an exclusive collection of stemware designed to transform the way wine drinkers experience wine. The carefully thought-out glasses were developed specifically for the climatic regions from which the wine comes. Instead of matching your glass to the grape, Lenox and James focus on where the wine was created.

Carrol Boyes

The Carrol Boyes Ripple glassware collection is handmade with a delicate ripple motif at the base of the glass. Comes in a set of four.


The most classic of glassware shapes for delightful drinking


Metropolitan is a collection of drinkware for wine, designed for bringing people together. Each elegant and contemporary piece, from flutes and saucers to wine glasses, is made with quality and care to enhance any occasion. Inspired by cosmopolitan culture and urban living, the pieces — created for both formal and casual settings — feature angular bowls and tall, finely drawn stems.


Round Up from Nude Glass is a highly decorative, vintage inspired four-piece stemware range. The handmade leadfree glasses have been designed with a rounded bowl which encourages smooth pouring and encapsulates aromas. The wide ribbed, optic surface gives the glasses as an enchanting quality, accentuating the colour of the drink they hold. The elegant collection features four glass sizes: red wine, white wine, champagne coupe and champagne flute.

Villeroy & Boch The perfect companions to Villeroy & Boch’s MetroChic and MetroChic blanc collection are the filigree glasses made of crystal glass. The design of the MetroChic glasses was developed for discerning connoisseurs: the high-quality glasses made of crystal glass are formally restrained, but at the same time concise and stylish with their opulent goblets and guarantee perfect drinking pleasure.


Riedel Veloce is a new, impressive development based on state-of-the-art technology. The glass is taller than its predecessor Extreme and has a thinner stem and finer bowls. A specially developed machine, at Riedels Weiden factory, enables them to draw stems that are the equal of those made by hand by a master glassmaker. The base, with a diameter of 100 mm, is a new standard for large glass shapes and is the maximum that can be produced by machine. The weight of Riedel Veloce has been reduced considerably from that of the Extreme collection. The collection is available in nine sizes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, Syrah/Shiraz, Pinot Noir/Nebbiolo, Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, Chardonnay, a Champagne glass, and a water glass. 46 TABLEWARE INTERNATIONAL
