Schott Zwiesel’s Crystal Glass Set


Schott Zwiesel makes simple, elegant, functional glassware. This set of 6 collins glasses ($48) recognizes no elaborate design. It makes no statement, and is not purchased to say, “Look at me.” It exists to be used until no more, and then, to be replaced by its kin. No logos or etchings adorn it. Yet, for all of this, it is attractive.

This tumbler may hold no more than water, some ice, and the occasional lemonade. Expect it to always be graceful in its humility. It is solid enough to use daily, to be used to push a cold drink across the table to a friend as stops by unexpectedly. May your drinks always be refilled, and your friends visits frequent.
