Description

For centuries, the traditional Champagne glass style, in either hollow or solid stem. Largely supplanted since the 1970s by tall Champagne glasses in variations of the tulip and flute styles. The saucer form of this glass is said (almost certainly apocryphally) to derive from the shape of Marie Antoinette's breast, or that of other Royals, depending the version of the story.

Volume
