There is ongoing speculation as to the origin of the saucer champagne glass. Some have said that the glass was modeled after the breasts of Marie Antoinette. Others have said they were created by Madame du Pompadour, the mistress of Frances’s Loius XV, as a gift for her lover. These theories are possible as champagne was invented in the 17th century and the saucer champagne glass was first introduced in England around 1663. Over the years the tulip shape has gained in popularity, so much so, that we never see the older version. Many seem to prefer it as the bubbles have the space to form and rise to the surface. However, the saucer also has neat attibutes as you can really smell the aroma and feel the bubbles when in use.

Over this last year, I have noticed a return to the saucer champagne, also known as the champagne sherbet, as its secondary use is for ice creams and soft desserts. The reason for the resurgence is the effect of changing styles in both home d?cor and spirits. Firstly, tables are becoming more formal again with heavily embellished dinnerware and the correct utensil for every type of food stuff. The more bulbous form has an opulence seen in more formal events. You may present new gifts to your friends or relatives. The other reason is the growing popularity of spirits like prosecco and champagnes, over wines for cocktail hour. In my research it is hard to find saucer champagnes in the US, but in fact they are still made by most of the top crystal companies. We have put together a group of both traditional and modern styles to order in time for the holidays. Many gifts are available here. For more information www.etabletop.com
