Blown Glass Wine Cup with a golden reddish tan interior and beige lower body, with twilight blue, burnt red, yellow, white, and shades of golden adobe. Nice webbing effects, and a very nice raised/rolled lower edge to the draped applications of molton glass. Very nice tactile qualities and a beautiful shape. This beautiful wine cup measures 3-1/4" high, 2-7/8" diameter at the widest part, and 2-1/4" across the top. As with all my wine cups, the natural punty mark is recessed slightly in the base. The punty mark is a wonderful mark of it's being handmade, an important part of it's creation, the point w it was joined for it's development then separated. Just like belly buttons, and just as most people don't remove their belly buttons, I leave the punty marks. New, Perfect cond. Signed Watson.

Perfect for a Special Gift or to keep yourself. These wine cups are so much more interesting to hold and to drink from than traditional wine glasses. Try one for a different experience and you'll see. Most of my wine cups are fairly similar in size to a wine glass bowl section, just without the stem and foot.

I believe my winecups to be very unusual and unique. They each have their own personality, and are very comfortable to hold. It is a very different, pleasurable experience to drink wine from one of these cups. Of course, even if you don't drink wine, this cup would be a pleasure to own or would make a truly unique gift for someone special. This is an original, one of a kind, handblown glass work that is a pleasure to look at and to use. Made by and signed Watson. Please click on 'sellers other items' or on my ebay store to see more.

My website shows more of my work. Lots of wine cups with multiple closeups of each, glass, pottery tea bowls, paintings and more. Take a look at

Each piece of my work is one of a kind. All of my winecups have the natural punty mark in a slightly recessed base.

One Important Note: These glass cups are not meant for hot liquid such as Tea or Coffee. The glass you see used for coffee cups or hot use is pyrex or another form of borosilicate glass, a glass made for hot use, and is not the glass I use. With most non-pyrex glass such as mine, coffee or tea poured into it would likely cause thermal shock and cracking or breakage.

Also please note the size, as I take closeups so that all the fantastic detail can be seen, and the photos sometimes make the cup appear larger than it is.

I do combine shipping on the wine cups. If combining, please wait for the final invoice with the reduced shipping to pay. Regular shipping on the first wine cup is charged, then 1.50 shipping is added for each additional cup that is included in the same invoice/shipment.

Please do not hesitate to email if you have any questions.
