Wine

Wine has been enjoyed for thousands of years. It has played an important part in expressing and celebrating cultural identity throughout the world. Vessels represent the variety of forms which evolved to reflect different customs and ideas. This goblet, in the Arts and Crafts style, bears an inscription translated from a medieval Iranian poem by Omar Khayyam: 'while the rose blows along the river brink, with old khayyam the ruby vintage drink'.
