What drew me to these glasses was the beautiful chinoiserie of the bird design. The glasses are lightweight considering that they're double-glassed. They wash up in the dishwasher just fine. I was disappointed, however, that they don't sit flush on the counter as there's a small, circular indentation on the bottom that creates a tiny imbalance. I also don't like that there's a sticker within the double glass wall which obviously is not removable. They are very pretty and I enjoy using them but for the money, I had hoped that the imperfections that were apparent were not there.
