The very large bowl of this glass makes it suitable for modern drinkers who tend to prefer a larger glass than our Georgian ancestors. The price of wine had a huge impact on the size of Georgian wine glasses and this was influenced by war and harvests. This must have been made at a good time for Georgian wine drinkers.
