Looking for elegant looking "podstakanniki" Russian tea glass

I am looking for some elegant looking "podstakanniki" Russian tea glass. I know Alex already talked about Sovietski collection but their selection is very limited. Alex or anyone know any other website who has a larger selection? Thank you advance.

I did a Google search on a Russian word and this is the most fancy (ridiculously so) one I found.

Good luck getting it through Russian customs.

They're rather an odd piece. I've never really seen anyplace that had a "good" selection. Typically, it's one or two styles.
But here's another expensive one. $350. Sheesh!

If you're not a part of the solution, there's good money to be made

Ripon,
They're both awful, and the prices are insulting, IMHO. Yours -- the ones with the waist of which Sasha spoke earlier -- serve well in place of the usual glass pitcher. But yours have some gold design features I could do without. I'll bet those simple Turkish glasses in that form, once found, will cost next to nothing. Sheesh.

Michael/Derek/Alex:
The prices are not worth it with the design. I agree my Turkish glasses are simple and nicer. Thanks Alex for warning me about Russian customs. I was burned twice already-:) I want something will come from US. The reason, I am looking for is- I am collecting tea glasses from different countries for my book and my own collection. Thanks Derek for your search.
I think, I have found a Russian store near Vienna. Lets see what can I find there. The seller is beautiful Russian female and always wanted me to buy something but I always disappointed her. Once she told me, everything is possible to get from Russia only if I contact her and let her try. Humm.. maybe I will give her a chance LOL Michael, you are always wise. Thanks buddy.

I've order items from Russia on Ebay with no problem. I think the biggest problems in customs is the proper paper work. Plus using an export company doesn't hurt. I've order items from HK Postal with a tracking number and sometimes they sit for a week in Alaska clearing our customs. I think there is less a problem with customs if sent by sea than by air.

Plug in 'russian glass holder' into Ebay and you'll get Russian dealers selling mostly nickel(german) silver such as:

Occasionally expensive sterling silver will pop up. I use this as an example of what I've seen:

PS: I really like this for Ebay cheap:

Derek -
Solid silver with Faberge-style hot color enamel? Nobody needs that in a lass-holder, but this is not at all expensive.

Sorry gang that was the link for the expensive bronze. I can't find my link for the expensive sterling silver. You get the idea mostly cheap nickel silver on Ebay with the occasional expensive sterling silver but still cheaper than the websites.
Jim ...Ebay promo sunk...
