Story Behind the Art:
The artistry of Javier and Efren has been featured in periodicals ranging from 'Sunset' magazine to the 'Miami Herald.' Since the 1990s, Javier Gutierrez and Efren Canteras have worked together to preserve Mexico's blown glass artistry. 'I love blown glass because of the pure imagination poured into every piece created,' confides Efren. 'Mexico's blown glass artistry is unique,' says Javier enthusiastically. 'Now I have the opportunity to teach the art of blowing hot glass to other young artisans.' Javier specializes in design, and Efren transforms the designs into a reality.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Expect the unexpected. I was surprised that the dimensions were so far off. It was important to me because, I wanted them low enough to fit nicely into my refrigerator's water & ice port. Instead, they are far too big to fit (7.25 inches in height ). Their maximum fluid capacity however, is just over a pint (17 fl.oz). Not the description given: "Each: ... x 5.9 in. H; 9.0 oz.". Nine ounces being just over a cup (8 fl. oz), simular to a low ball glass. I'm pleased, that they hold more than twice the amount of liquid, O.co, claimed.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Slightly
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Rustic Mexican
How accurate was the sizing? Horribly inaccurate (see actual measurements below).
This is an unusual purchase. One part of me feels that they are real quality. The height of the glasses don't necessarily match (as the review says) leading me to believe they really are hand blown glass. Another part feels that they are something I could purchase at any housewares store. They look great in my glass cabinet, my sister went ga-ga over them and they are the perfect weight and size for summer cocktails or fresh lemonade. All in all, I would have to recommend them and say they will get plenty of compliments.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes.
I bought these because I used to have another set previously that I had bought at Pier One. These are very nice, good price. Only thing is their kind of skinny, so they don't hold a great deal of liquid. I guess I should have read description a little bit better. Overall, however, there very good quality as the rim where you drink from and blue swirls around are very nice and smooth. (some others I've seen from MX are a bit rough).
I am very happy with the cobalt glasses from overstock.com, as well as my many other purchases from overstock. These glasses are not delicate at all and definatley hold up to the dishwasher/family test. I also love how they blend with my tuscan every day dishes. I also purchased the smaller juice glasses with just a blue rim on the edge, all blend very well. I would definately recommend these Mexican glasses for anyone who wants a "foreign" flair on their table. Very Happy.
These are beautiful, heavy, substantial glasses. They were well packed. I gave a "4 Star" rating because the glasses do not hold 14.0 ounces of liquid, but 11.5 ounces. But they are unique and a definite keeper!!
