I am very happy with these water glasses. I had been looking around for water glasses for awhile and I wanted something that did not look cheap and flimsy, and also unique. I saw these glasses being sold on other websites, but O.com had the most reasonable price. They are more that what I had planned to spend, but since the glasses are beautifully made and are high quality, the price was worth it. The manufacturer of the glasses is also the oldest glass company in France, which makes for a cool story too. I did not think I would like glassware with designs/patterns on them, but the bee design is nicely designed and executed, so the glasses look sophisticated and elegant. The only downside is that the glasses do not hold as much water as my old glasses, but that is a compromise that I am willing to make. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase. I would highly recommend these glasses to others.

i could not be happier, I can use for everyday!! They are thick but not to heavy very classy looking too. I ordered the smaller size as well. so excited to have all my glasses match for a change. My daughter is getting married next year these will be on the list along with recommendation of overstock .com they were packaged with care and no chance of breakage. I searched other sites and with the shipping charges included overstock WON!
I really, really like these glasses. They are very sturdy, have a nice heft to them. Because the base of the glass part is tapered, it feels very good in your hand. The base of the glass itself is quite sturdy and where the weight is, so they are also very stable (difficult to knock or tip over). So overall the shape and design is great. Also that fluted shape with stabilizing base is unusual and one I will seek out in future glasses. The only reason I didn't give this five stars is because the glasses are 'seamed' so there is a joining line on each side that doesn't show up in the picture. I kind of wish that wasn't there, but decided that for the price, and the fact that I like everything else about them, they were keepers. I actually bought 12 so I can use them at parties. Oh and the bees are even cuter than they are in the picture! :-)
I purchased this set of bee glasses to replace ones that I already had but chipped or gave to my daughter-in-law to complete her set. I really like the feel of the glasses in the hand and they are thick and sturdy. I just like the bees on them!
Awesome glasses! I have had them now for about 3 years (I think). They are nice and heavy and the exact look I was going for with my table setting. I appreciate the history of thee glasses as well - made in France in the oldest glass making factory in that country. So cool. I purchased these tall ones and a set of the shorter ones too.
When I opened the box I was stunned at the natural beauty of these simple glasses. Then I held them in my hand and felt the sturdiness of the glass. I've been looking for just the right glass for quite a while. When I read the great reviews on this website and others, I knew I had to try them. The price for 6 glasses was similar to prices that I found for sets of 4 on other websites and in stores. This is a purchase I will treasure every day that I use them.
These glasses cost more than I have ever paid for glasses before but the fact that they are made by a company that's been making glassware since before the US was a nation is impressive. The quality is great and being a beekeeper myself, I love the little bee motif on the glass. I received them with one glass broken and called customer service right away. They quickly took care of the issue and within a couple days a new glass was on the way and arrived in perfect condition.
