These beautiful glasses with special handle are available in two sizes and were custom-made for the user. The glasses, which were originally designed without a handle, are on sale in the glassworks shop at Skansen. The custom glasses with special handle (a ring made of glass) can be ordered from the manufacturer. The wine glass costs about SEK 350; the price may vary depending on number of items ordered.
The glasses are beautiful on the table and functional for a quadriplegic to use. It is possible to work with Karin Hammar from the Skansen Glassworks to design and order other glass items such as beer glasses or pitchers. Unfortunately a stairway leads down to the glassworks, so let them know you are coming ahead of time.
