To prevent the sampling of fine spirits from becoming too serious a matter, bring out the Tilt collection. Each tumbler, glass, or decanter leans playfully, some might say perilously, sideways; but gravity is no match for the thick, very heavy bases that keep these works of art upright. Each of these four Tilt cordial glasses, crafted by skilled European artisans of full-lead crystal, is quite elegant despite its playful quality; the slanted base and bowl seamlessly flow together and rise to a level rim. The 3-1/2-inch cordial glass is ideal for sipping a shot of high-end tequila, vodka, or port, and looks dramatic complemented with a Tilt decanter. All Tilt items are boxed for giving, and are best washed by hand to preserve their fine brilliance.
Nambé was founded in 1951 in a village of the same name in scenic northern New Mexico. From the beginning, the company focused on hand-producing high-quality, functional items such as sand-cast metal bowls and trays with great attention to timeless, modern design. Porcelain tableware also now joins Nambé crystal and metal lines, all of which make exceptional gifts for the most special of occasions. Nambé ware has won numerous design awards, has been shown in or recognized by nearly two dozen museums worldwide, and is part of the permanent collections of many, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York. --Ann Bieri
