Murano Glass Tumblers on My Wish List

I have been using a GOTO SBRUFFO Murano Glass Tumbler for a couple of years at the office and I love it. It is very luxurious and it has such a wonderful texture I really enjoy holding it and drinking out of it. But there is another style Murano Glass tumbler that has been calling my name and I want to buy a set to bring home where, at present, I don’t have any Murano glass.

To be more specific what has caught my fancy is the GOTO COLATA Murano glass tumbler. We have six in stock and I want all six because I envision using all six. We either invite two or four adults over with their kids. I wouldn’t dare giving these to the kids so with a set of six I will be all set. The question remains whether these could work as informal wine glasses. I have been using the set we got for our wedding and it is so nice to drink wine out of a proper glass that I wouldn’t want to downgrade too often. Perhaps they will work great with beer, I don’t know, I will have to figure it out.

GOTO COLATA Murano Glass Tumbler in Eggplant

One of my favorite Murano glass tumblers.

The biggest problems that these tumblers would solve are, first, that they are smaller than wine glasses so they are less likely to get broken, and, second, that people always seem to misplace their glass and we don’t have to resort to other methods such as writing on the glass or using some kind of charm to identify each.

Above all, what I am looking forward to is falling in love with these tumblers. Holding the result of millennia of glass blowing traditions and watching the beauty of each item as it interacts with my friends and family is priceless.
