Pre WWII Modernist Style; Steuben #7924

Here's an example of a great American glass company moving from fine engraved stemware to simple, clean modernist lines. Steuben's George Thompson designed these striking goblets in 1940. At first glance one might think, "How boring, they are the "Emperor's New Clothes" and while they are simple they are also very substantial, the glass is near flawless, and the most amazing thing, they feel like silk on your lips.
