Pair Jenaer Glas Mid Century Teacups

Jenaer Glas is considered among the finest consumer glassware in the world. Its mid century collection is a work of modern art, with some pieces displayed in renowned art museums. The story of its production begins back in 1886 in Jena, Germany with a man named Otto Schott. He was a chemist and glass engineer and he had the idea of creating glass items that would be consistent in their design. This might seem like a simple task to us today; but, at the end of the 19th century, most glass was created by hand as one-of-a-kind items.

At first Schott and his team created optical and thermometer glasses. A year later, they discovered how to make heat resistant glassware. Following the first World War, the company began producing household glass. Jars for canning were the first. Teapots and tea cups and cookware quickly followed. The Jenaer Glas trademark was started.

I love the look, feel, and design of anything make by this German glass company. You can still find pieces from the mid 20th century if you look hard enough. I have a wonderful collection to share in my shop. Be sure to browse through all the items including several creamers. Easy to clean and heat resistant, they make a perfect addition to any kitchen table.

This pair of teacups and saucers are the most delightful modern shape. The square saucers make them extra special. Unfortunately, there are a number of scratches and scuffs to the top of the saucers but there are no chips on the rim. Condition is fair at best. Please take a look at the last photo. The teacups are in good vintage condition with no chips to the glass. I have an extra teacup that matches the set and I’ll include for a pair +1.

Saucers measure 6 1/4 inches square

Teacups measure 1 1/4 inches high and 4 1/4 inches in diameter
