In an age where most products are machine-manufactured, there’s definitely something to be said for those who strive to keep handcrafted products alive. The artisans at Glasi Hergiswil on Lake Lucerne are just such people… and they’ve been producing high-quality, functional pieces from exclusively lead-free glass since 1817, despite the struggles they faced along the way.
Pictured above, from top: This dramatic cone-shaped server ($40) is a unique way to serve fruits & nuts… not to mention the perfect foundation for a very modern cornucopia display! (Modern Thanksgiving, anyone?) And the oblong Gondola server ($40) is perfect for serving simple bites like stuffed olives or dips such as guacamole and hummus.

Pictured below: the versatile & generous-sized Party Platter ($72) and the pretty Sushi Tray ($36) – which looks like a cool block of ice to me – with coordinating Dip Bowl ($20).
