"Brilliant" Cut Glass Tumblers - Set of 3 - image 1 of 6

"Cut glass" is glass that has been decorated entirely by hand by use of rotating wheels. Cuts are made in an otherwise completely smooth surface of the glass by artisans holding and moving the piece against various sized metal or stone wheels, to produce a predetermined pleasing pattern. Cutting may be combined with other decorative techniques, but "cut glass" usually refers to a glass object that has been decorated entirely by cutting.

The Brilliant Cut Glass era in American extended from 1876 -1917. First introduced by eight enterprising American companies at the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia.

This is a gorgeous set of 3 brilliant cut glass tumblers, circa 1915. The pattern surrounding each piece consists of wide, beveled ribbon connecting six-pointed stars with delicate rays radiating from each and bulls eye circles positioned within the overall pattern. The tumblers measure 4" in height, 3" across the top and 2 3/8" across the base. Unsigned as to maker. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Clean, unique pattern.
