With all the plastic drinking glasses, thermal, insulated and whatnot, it is hard to argue that regular old glasses are necessary. But, still, when one sits down to the festive table of our biggest celebrations, we still bring out the regular or fine glassware to go with the good china. So, celebrations still call for glasses, and you need a pitcher to fill the water glasses or for placement on the table for refills. Thus, an antique glass water pitcher and glasses.
You may have one or more sets in the family already, so this problem is taken care of. Of not, there are a lot of choices in regular and antique glass pitchers. There are fine antique cut glass and modern cut glass water pitchers, with or without matching drinking glasses. Most crystal patterns include pitchers as well as fourteen kinds of tumblers and stemmed glasses.
If cut glass is out of your budget, there is many a glass water pitcher included in regular glass patterns, such as are promoted to new brides. You can also find complete sets of tumblers and a glass pitcher in the china department of larger stores. New water pitchers, sold individually, are often available at import stores and other places that sell household goods. Still, if you are looking at something a little more appealing, look at antique stores and flea markets, and put together your own set of pitcher and antique glasses. Even if they do not match, or perhaps especially if they do not, you can have a representative antique glass of many patterns to go with your antique glass water pitcher and set a more dynamic table.
Collecting modern, vintage and antique water glasses and water pitchers can provide you with the service you need for any celebration, as well as pretties to fill a china cabinet or two. Keep an eye out for lone glasses and pitchers and build your own eclectic sets.
