The hand-painted Chancel Pilsner is a 20 ounce beer glass which stands just over 8 inches tall. The pilsner glass is an elegant design - tall, slender, and tapered. The slender glass reveals the color and carbonation of the beer, while the broad top (3.25 inches) will help maintain a frothy beer head.
Colorful painted pieces of glass appear to be melded together by the pewter outline giving both the texture and illusion of true stained-glass, yet in a functional form.
Of all the variations this design has gone through over the years, the pewter outline and green stem have made their mark. I like the softer pewter outline - most stained-glass uses a leading of a similar shade - making this combination feel more traditional to me.
This design reminds me of a stained-glass window, the kind you find in an old church - classic and timeless. It’s a design that can be used all year long.
