DECEMBER 19: NovaScotian Crystal Seafarer’s Rum Glass

This NovaScotian Crystal rum glass is beautifully balanced to bring out the best in your favourite rum – and for the sailor in you, the heavy base and a low centre of gravity keep it upright on the table rather than on the floor.

A tribute to sailors, mariners and rum-runners alike, the Seafarer’s Pattern is a beautiful reference to the Atlantic. Quick, severe cuts mimic the sharp choppy waves born of the unflagging Gulf Stream winds. The narrow swath of cuts evokes the seafarer’s wake… watch it sparkle like the setting sun off restful waters.

People claim to feel at ease holding a Seafarer’s piece – thanks perhaps to the compass rose cut and the comfort a mariner takes in having this navigational tool in their hand.

About NovaScotia Crystal:

NovaScotian Crystal is Canada’s only maker of mouth-blown, hand-cut crystal, and one of the very few in the world. They employ the traditional tools and techniques of European crystal makers passed down from generation to generation. What started a generation ago, from a group of Irish immigrants with a commitment to preserving an ancient and vanishing craft, has become a truly Canadian story of respect for tradition, beauty and fine craftsmanship.

For more than 20 years, NovaScotian Crystal has exemplified high craft and Canadian excellence. Today their pieces are recognized icons of luxury.

NovaScotian Crystal takes the fine craftsmanship of crystal making and elevates it to the realm of artistry. From the original design to the mouth-blown shape to the hand-cut pattern, every piece is unique and bears the mark of the maker. And when a piece fulfills its purpose in your home, it becomes functional art.
