This lovely engraved and etched Crystal Glass for Tea Glass Holder (Podstakannik, literally means "under the glass") was made by hand and imported from Russia. Crystal contains 24% lead oxide which makes it heavier than glass, as well as making it more lustrous and clear. Its size is designed to fit most Russian Tea Glass Holder, and its decorative design will bring delight to any tea drinking party. Glass measurements are approximate.
To avoid the cracking of the glass when pouring boiling water in it, put a metal spoon in the glass to conduct away some of the heat.
