Russian Tea Holders Vintage Glass Holders with Frosted Glass Set of 3

I did a lot of research to find out just what these beautiful glasses are, and from what I can tell they are Russian tea glass holders or "podstakannik". It is a holder with a handle, most commonly made of metal that holds a drinking glass.

The primary purpose of podstakanniks is to be able to hold a very hot glass of tea, which is usually consumed right after it is brewed. It is a traditional way of serving and drinking tea in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and other post-Soviet states.

I'm not sure what metal they are made out of, but I would guess they're silver plated. The frosted glasses are in great shape, with no cracks or chips. I believe these are very rare and highly collectible. The have a beautiful shell and filigree design.

Approx dimensions: 2 3/8" x 2" (without handle)
