Rolf Glass has partnered with Colonial Williamsburg once again to bring you York Compass Rose©. Delicately cut and sand-etched, this collection employs a rare dual-process approach to engraving that makes it a uniquely Rolf Glass product.
A compass rose is the navigational marker traditionally used on maps to indicate direction. The device appears on Captain John Smith’s Map of Virginia, based on his explorations of the new colony from 1606 to 1608, and published in London in 1612. Smith’s depiction of the Native American settlements in the New World is considered one of the most important maps ever produced. A 1624 edition is a jewel among collections of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, and serves as the inspiration for the York Compass Rose© collection.
York Compass Rose© comes in a classic USA made 14oz Double Old-Fashioned glass as well as a bold 28oz European mouth-blown, lead-free crystal decanter. This handsome collection makes a perfect retirement, graduation or birthday gift, and is a must have for every home bar.
