silver water goblet - Godinger Dublin
Godinger Dublin Crystal Set of 12 Goblets
The most versatile of all of the sizes in the beautiful Dublin pattern by Godinger is the goblet.This glass can be used for water, wine or your favorite beverage. Like all of the other sizes, the Godinger goblet sets a lovely table and shows why European lead crystal is so coveted and cherished.
One of Godinger's most well-loved patterns, Dublin crystal glassware unites time-honored European craftsmanship and classic Irish style. A member of the larger Shannon collection, this set of 12 all-purpose goblets features dazzling starburst etchings that are centered low on the tapered bowls and stretch up to just below the rims and down to meet the thick stems. Hand-crafted of weighty 24 percent lead crystal, these versatile 9-ounce tumblers suit a formal dining table or bar, yet are sturdy enough to be used as dressy everyday glasses. They join the full Dublin line to add luminescent elegance to your home decor. Godinger recommends washing the set by hand. --Kara Karll
ode to an onion
For utata ip106: a root vegetable, something metallic, and high key lighting I couldn't think of a title and wrote down Ode to an Onion, then googled it and found that Pablo Neruda had written a very nice poem: Onion, luminous flask, your beauty formed petal by petal, crystal scales expanded you and in the secrecy of the dark earth your belly grew round with dew. Under the earth the miracle happened and when your clumsy green stem appeared, and your leaves were born like swords in the garden, the earth heaped up her power showing your naked transparency, and as the remote sea in lifting the breasts of Aphrodite duplicating the magnolia, so did the earth make you, onion clear as a planet and destined to shine, constant constellation, round rose of water, upon the table of the poor. You make us cry without hurting us. I have praised everything that exists, but to me, onion, you are more beautiful than a bird of dazzling feathers, heavenly globe, platinum goblet, unmoving dance of the snowy anemone and the fragrance of the earth lives in your crystalline nature.
