The hand-painted Lighthouse balloon has a sleek long stem, sheer rim, and rounded bowl. The balloon shape allows the aromas and flavors of the bigger, bolder red wine to emerge, increasing the flavor and enjoyment of your wine.
The ballon glass is approximately 8 inches tall and has a 19 ounce capacity.
Lighthouse has been a longstanding design in my collection and has gone through several revisions since it was first introduced. When I started painting lighthouses I made ones with red stripes, black stripes, and additional detailing - there were four standard variations!
After a while I simplified it to one lighthouse - an iconic white lighthouse on a rocky perch. This lighthouse still used the heavy black outline of the original designs. Yet another revision simplified the design and brought me to today’s lighthouse.
I eliminated the outline and am much happier with the look and feel of the design.
