How to choose port glasses
• The first order of business when selecting port glasses is to choose stemware of the appropriate shape and size.
• Port glasses may be crafted from glass or crystal. Glass is lighter than crystal, which traditionally contains traces of lead.
• Crystal port glasses are softer, which makes them easier to engrave or etch. They diffract light for a unique, dazzling effect. Modern crystal glassware is usually unleaded in comparison to vintage stemware, yet it offers the same benefits.
• Whether you choose a patterned set of glasses or basic clear glass, be sure that they’re comfortable to hold and easy to clean.
