Having smashed a couple of our 'posh' flutes over the years, we needed a few extra for our Christmas party. But - like many people, I suspect - we didn't see the point in spending loads of money on glasses that will probably only be used a few times a year. These glasses are a nice shape, sturdy enough to be put in the dishwasher, and have a good capacity too. My wife dislikes glasses that have a lip around the top, and for people who also find this annoying, I'm happy to report that these ones don't have a lip. It's not all that clear from the photos, so I thought I'd clarify!
All in all, very nice glasses for the money, and I'd recommend them.
