Simply.Swift: The Champagne Coupe

Image

I have always held a tendre for vintage things as they always evoked a sense of simplicity and class. The epitome of simple and classy is the champagne coupe, also known as a saucer.  Over the decades the flute has taken precedence. Admittedly mostly due to the flute preserving the bubbles better but who lets champagne sit around in a glass anyways?

You can still find a few coupes available for sale but you can easily find lots of great vintage coupes on ebay, etsy, thift shops, or perhaps a garage sale. Happy hunting!
