“ Brand: Julien MacDonald / Product Type: Glass „
I bought some of these glasses for my friend who had just got engaged. I loved them so much I also bought some cocktail glasses for myself. I don't usually like animal skin designs but these are really lovely and to be honest they don't look like the zebra print they are supposed to be. The glasses are the zebra print cocktail glasses by Julien Macdonald and are available in Debenhams stores and their on line site.
The cocktail glasses cost £9.00 each but are currently in their sale for £7.20.
The cocktail glasses are approximately 18cm's high and at their widest they are 12cm's so they are a nice size. They will hold roughly a 1/2 pint of liquid which is ideal for cocktails but when using them for wine as we did it is a lot.
The base and stem of the cocktail glasses is plain but the actual bowl of the glass is what makes these so striking, its covered in what is supposed to be zebra print, however in my opinion this looks nothing like zebra print. The glass is covered in black and silver/grey swirls which is very pretty and I think quite elegant.
I have a black theme running all through the downstairs of my home and all my table wear has a black theme running through it so these go absolutely perfectly. I love things to be colour coordinated and as I mentioned we have only used these for wine and they look perfect on a dining table all set for a meal. They are a little bit unusual in their design and when we have friends or family round they always comment on how lovely they are.
The zebra print cocktail glasses are only suitable for hand washing but I couldn't imagine putting these in a dishwasher anyway. We have used ours a lot and so far they have remained in perfect condition, the pattern has neither faded or worn off.
If you are looking for some stylish glasses then I would definitely recommend taking a look at these, they make a lovely addition to a dining table or even if you are just having a drink they add a little bit of glamour. The Julien Macdonald zebra print glasses make a lovely gift with mothers day coming up or any occasion really, you could fill them with truffles and you have a lovely present. They are more expensive than the glasses we normally buy but for something a little bit special these are ideal.
The same design is also available in a champagne flute which I now have my eye on.
