Schott Zwiesel- The World's Best Crystal Glass
Schott Zwiesel (a brand of Zwiesel Kristallglas, AG) has a 130 year history of innovation and success, including such break through developments as the first machine made stemware and the first lead-free crystal glass. With the introduction of the proprietary Tritan Crystal technique (the result of special compositions such as titanium with a unique tempering process) Zwiesel has once again revolutionized the industry. Rigorous laboratory testing proves the brilliance, dishwasher safety, and break resistance of Tritan. We invite you to discover why we call our product "The World's Best Crystal Glass" and why it is the choice of the finest restaurants, resorts, and sommeliers worldwide.
From Fortessa, the leading designer of formal and casually elegant tableware.
Dishwasher-safe, Durable Composition
Schott Zwiesel's process tempers each of the zones of stemware that are most prone to breakage: the rim, the junction of the bowl and stem, and the junction of the foot and stem. The added strength of the Tritan composition along these zones renders the stemware chip and break-resistant and allows the pieces to stand up to the abuse of daily use.
The highly durable composition also gives Tritan glassware the ability to withstand extensive dishwashing without etching, discoloring or clouding the material. Independent, long-term testing has proven our new crystal glass shines through 3,000 dishwasher cycles without damage, blemish or any loss of brilliance.
Designed with Better Taste in Mind
Schott Zwiesel creates Tritan Crystal Glass with aesthetic beauty in mind, but also with purpose.Each piece provides total balance by proportionately engineering the height, width, weight, and capacity of the glass. The proper pour capacity is measured in each wine glass at the bowl's widest point. This leaves the correct distance between the wine and the stemware's rim, which allows the glass to be turned sideways and experience characteristics of each wine varietal's bouquet at maximum potential.
Additionally, the laser-cut rim of each piece creates a smooth path for wine to travel into one's palate.
When the stemware is tipped back, the straight rim directs wine to spill at the appropriate section of the palate where a high concentration of taste buds can catch and savor each and every flavor of the wine. Laser-etched effervescent points in champagne flutes, which direct a cascade of bubbles to the center of the flute provide a longer lasting effervescence to champagnes and sparkling wines- a once hidden detail only experienced by much more expensive crystal.
A "Sense-ationally" Detailed Experience
Stimulate all four senses, sight, taste, smell and touch through unmatched details found in Tritan Crystal Glass. Firm and secure in the hand, Tritan's remarkable strength is matched by uncompromised aesthetic quality and a unique visual flair. With versatile designs, whether it's Classic, Traditional, Modern, or Dramatic, Tritan has a style to complement any personal style. Using laser cutting and etching technology, Schott Zwiesel also aims to maximize enjoyment of a drink's flavor and fragrance. Finally, experience also the fifth sense, the distinct ringing sound of high quality crystal glasses along with the fine, smooth polished rims, and seamless stems.
Schott Zwiesel protects the natural environment by conserving resources and making optimal use of energy in the manufacture of our products. The patented Tritan crystal glass collections are lead and barium free, created with only natural materials and designed for functional use and long-lasting brilliance.

Just like Cary Grant, By Finance guy 'tactful'
January 16, 2011
Champagne coupes are a rarity these days, having been driven underground by critics who insist that 'the bubbles last longer in champagne flutes.' Who cares what they say? If you want to feel like Cary Grant or Eva Marie Saint or Audrey Hepburn, this may be the glass for you. Lovely glasses, nice crystal, the price is quite reasonable and they can do double duty for handsome servings of dessert or appetizers. What difference does it make if the bubbles last longer in a flute? Instead of standing around holding your glass, drink up. You'll never know whether they would have lasted longer hypothetically.
Hunted for champagne coupes/saucers, settled on these, By Robertson

My husband and I wanted coupes/saucers instead of champagne flutes- we wanted something a little different and his parents had a really nice set. There weren't a lot of options, but decided to register for these because Schott is a good brand with high quality glass.We've really enjoyed these glasses because they are also fantastic for cocktails. They aren't the best looking glasses, but they aren't bad looking either. Durable enough that I'm not worried about breaking them, but thinner would have been nicer.
Great for the price, By Minnesotan 'Lrschum'

Despite the negative review I decided to order these anyway. There seems to be some confusion, they are NOT crystal, but are glass (dishwasher safe)-- obviously for $80 you won't get 6 crystal glasses, you'd get half of a glass. They arrived in great condition, no chips or cracks. The glass is not ugly and chunky, it's fairly thin but not fragile looking. They are not hand blown so there is a seam from the press, but it is only noticeable if you try and find it, really it's very discreet. Over all, great glasses, do not look cheap, will make a good wedding gift. I recommend these to other buyers.
