These flutes are beautiful. The pattern is great, and so are the proportions. I knew going in that they were hand wash only because of the gold leaf detailing. What I didn't realize is that they are incredibly delicate glass. Thin, and not at all sturdy-feeling. I was borderline scared when I washed them. They also have a slightly rolled rim, which wouldn't be my first choice in a champagne flute. They do look killer on my bar!
