- Pattern: Endangered Wildlife Species
- Made in Denmark
- Vintage: 1960’s – 1970’s (estimated)
- Details: These gorgeous etched glasses were made by none other than the renowned Georg Jensen firm. They are acid etched with wonderful detailed figures of wild animals that are on the endangered list. We believe they made 8 different animals, we have a set of 4 which includes the: Bald Eagle, Whooping Crane, White Rhinoceros and Oryx. (These are vintage glasses, the Bald Eagle and White Rhinoceros are no longer on the endangered list, and the Oryx did become extinct in 1972). As with all Scandinavian designs, simplicity is key, these glasses have weighted bottoms and no gold rims, just clear beautiful glass and etched figures gives them an air of class and sophistication. This set will make a stunning addition to any bar or just as beautiful on a bar cart. Great conversation starter!

Oryx – Uncontrolled hunting and capture were the major reasons the oryx originally became extinct in the wild in 1972. Luckily, a last ditch rescue operation started in 1961 and ensured that a small number of animals were transferred to zoos for captive breeding. Today they are considered “Vulnerable”.
Bald Eagle – Habitat destruction and degradation, illegal shooting, and the contamination of its food source, (due to use of the pesticide DDT), nearly destroyed the eagle population and placed them on the endangered list. Today Bald Eagles are no longer an Endangered Species and are thriving so have been moved to “Least Concern”.
White Rhino – Uncontrolled hunting in the colonial era, plus the poaching for their horns today, are the main reasons why they were placed on the endangered list. After more than a century of protection and management, they are now classified as “Near Threatened” due to the continued poaching for the illegal trade in their horns.
Whooping Crane – Primary reasons they were placed on the endangered list include: wetland habitat loss, hunting for their meat and feathers (plumage), their eggs are considered rare and collectors pay a high price in the black market. Unfortunately, they remain on the Endangered list today.
