Beautiful bowl and glasses, very pleasantly surprised at the quality. I made a Christmas punch - Southern Comfort Punch, which was fabulous for my family crowd. I had discarded my very old circa 1960's typical punch bowl and decided I needed one - now, so looked at Macy's on-line and found this perfect one. The bowl seems like crystal, don't remember if it is, but certainly is bright, clear and sturdy, but not clunky. I'm a big fan of making a punch for a crowd now, after having so many compliments on my new bowl set!
