Tiffin Glass survived until 1980, outlasting so many of the American glass houses. They operated as Factory R, a unit of the U.S. Glass company. Tiffin was known especially for their beautiful stemware. The piece shown here is a good example. This is cut crystal, not etched, and the name is a pun. You can just see the bow like a ribbon in the front of the bowl, thus the name June Beau. Once you stop groaning from the pun you can agree that it's a clever name that fits the design. What I like most about this stem is the shape. The wide section near the top of the rim is a rounded wafer studded with little beads like a collar. The blank is sometimes called Pearl Collar, most appropriate and something you won't have a problem remembering. I like the graceful flare of the bowl and the ribbing on the stem that makes this easy to hold. This particular stem is the liquor cocktail; it's a little small for a sherbet and a nice size for a small after dinner drink or cocktail. It's fun to have a variety of stems to use for drinks. You can mix and match and not feel like everything has to match since it's not on a formal table setting. Go ahead and have fun with Tiffin stemware.
