Set of 19 retro mod goblets by Carlo Moretti, Italy. Circa 1959 to mid 1960.
Hand blown with applied stems. Featuring the velvety soft Satinato finish Moretti is famous for. The glass is top quality leaded crystal.
We describe the color as 'Tangerine', a semi-opaque vivid orange that glows when the light shines through. Mesmerizing color, very popular among the very mod in the 1960s. See it at retroartglass.com
It is difficult to find the Satinato finish without wear due to use and inappropriate cleaning methods. They are NOT dishwasher safe. The finish is durable, but it cannot withstand high heat or heavy scrubbing. ALL goblets in the set have NO damage to the Satinato. 18 are without chips, 1 dessert/champagne goblet has a very small sliver chip on the rim. All have rings of bottom-wear on the base due to surface contact over the past 50 years. The ring can be seen only when looking very closely and is not considered damage.
Set includes (8) Champagne/Dessert, (6) Wine, and (5) Water/Ice Tea goblets. Very rare to find a large set still together and in such fine shape, especially in this color.
The goblets are heavy due to the fine quality glass. Water goblets measure 7" tall, with a 3.5" wide mouth and weigh just under 1lb each. The wine glasses are 5.5" tall, 2.5" wide mouth and weigh just under 1/2lb. The champagne goblets stand 4.5" tall with a 4.25" wide mouth and weigh just over 1/2 lb.
