Dress for dinner with Rose Bouquet stemware. Relax later with the tumblers. Reach for a 16-oz. Tinted Tankard. Indulge your sense of style as you quench your thirst. Durable serving tray — looks like brushed ebony, accented by 8 gay Raffia glasses.

A toast to Libby for bringing out such a spectacular array of Golden Foliage! This is one of the best-loved patterns in glass — and small wonder!
