RG Elite, the premium division of Rolf Glass, is pleased to announce “Pittsburgh.” Blending tradition with modern; this deep, multifaceted, diamond and indent design emulates the superb craftsmanship of the American Brilliant Cut Glass Period. Cut into heavy-based high quality mouth-blown crystal, “Pittsburgh” is available in 7oz. double old-fashioned and 14oz. highball cocktail glasses. “Pittsburgh” will also be available in a matching 40oz. whiskey decanter in the spring.
Pennsylvania’s significance with the Brilliant Period reaches all the way back to the late-1700s when European glass-cutters began moving their operations from Europe to areas in and around Pennsylvania. Everything came to fruition in 1876 at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, which showcased how the designs and craftsmanship of American glasscutters was not only on par with that of the prestigious craftsmen of Europe but may have exceeded it. Following in the tradition of the American Brilliant Cut Glass Period (1876-1917), our “Pittsburgh” pattern is designed, cut and polished by experienced Pennsylvania craftsmen on high quality mouth blown Mexican studio glass. Our process is eco-friendly, using old-world manufacturing blended with modern technology, creating glassware of outstanding brilliancy and clarity.
