Whisky tumbler

This whisky tumbler, made of clear glass, was designed by Andreas D. Copier in 1958. It was made in 1965 by Koninklijke Nederlandsche Glasfabriek of Leerdam in the Netherlands.

The design is called 'Gourmet'.

Andreas Copier, born in 1901, joined the Leerdam glassworks in 1914 and continued to design and produce avant-garde works at the factory until he was in his eighties. Some of the early pioneers of the American Studio Glass movement came to study with him in the late 1960s, as did British artists of the following generation. He invented a number of new techniques and was one of the first to experiment with non-functional free blown shapes as early as 1958.
