"The Canadian" - Verre de vin Canadien

I once lived in Canada and remember the wines from British Columbia to this day. Wonderful vineyards producing outstanding wines which needs a wonderful glass!

When I set out to design a wine glass for the Canadian market it was obvious what I should use. Yes, I was thinking of a wine leaf at first but no, it had to be a maple leaf, the symbol that unites the nation.

The glass is made of 24%PbO crystal then hand cut and etched by master craftsmen. The number of rings around the glass represents the 10 provinces and the three territories

With today’s lifestyle in mind, I designed the glass to be suitable for all varieties of

wine, red, white or rose or as a splendid water goblet. I also wanted a glass that would be the talking point around the dining table and I think this as been achieved.

About the glass:

Hand cut in 24% PbO crystal and etched by master craftsmen.

Signed by the artist.

Unique design

Excellent corporate gift.

Use for red/white wine or “clear, cold water”.

The glass comes in a presentation box and cost CAD 50.00 plus the postage from Australia. We also have presentation box with 6 glasses ( a great corporate or personal gift ) costing CAD 330.00 plus the postage.

There is a very limited supply of these glasses so buy now and be one of 10 persons in Canada with this unique glass.
