Royal Brierley Fuchsia
The Royal Brierley Fuchsia design is a delicate and feminine motif of stems and leaves with hanging fuchsia heads. Applied to a traditional bell shaped bowl with a straight stem and applied foot the Fuchsia collection is designed to be seen and displayed as well as used. Fuchsia’s are a summer flowering plant with tear drop blooms often thought to resemble ballerinas. In mythology Fuchsias were said to represent overflowing abundance, intoxicating beauty and confiding love. The pink/red fuchsia colour is derived from the native plant of north America where the plant is prolific. Cultivated into the traditional English Garden in the latter days of the 17th century it remains a firm favourite with many gardeners today. The intricate detail of each bloom is faithfully etched onto each glass in the Fuchsia range with the bell like shape of the flower mirrored by the choice of glass shape. The Royal Brierley Fuchsia Collection includes three wine glass sizes from the smaller White Wine Glass
to the medium Large Wine Glass
up to the impressive Goblet
. The small Sherry Glass
is ideal for an aperitif and the round bowl of the Fuchsia Brandy Glass
is perfect for sipping a good Cognac after the meal. Sit and contemplate the warming spirit while losing yourself in the intricate detail of the etched design. If you are looking for old world sophistication with a delicate touch, then the Royal Brierley Fuchsia Collection ticks all the boxes.
