The 2018 Special Collector's Issue Jamestown Glasshouse piece is here! The Crackled Goblet is modeled from a 16th century Dutch artifact. To create this striking effect master blowers at Jamestown Glasshouse dip the glass, which is heated over 1000 degrees, quickly into water. When it first appeared, crackled glass represented a significant stylistic development in the historic art of glassblowing.
Add the Crackled Goblet to your Jamestown Glass collection this year! Three embossed lion;s heads give this piece a regal air. Each item in the Collector's series is one of a kind, engraved with a unique production number.
