- Prints made from an etched printing plate, which is a metal plate on which a design is made by coating the plate with an acid-resistant substance, creating a design in the coating, and then exposing the plate to acid, which etches the plate where the metal is exposed. For designs incised directly into a copper plate using a burin or graver, use "engravings (prints)."
- Representations of humans, animals, or mythical beasts, in any medium.
- Refers to the culture of the modern nation of France, or in general to cultures that have occupied the area of the modern nation in western Europe.
- In a general sense, refers to all drinking glasses intended for wine, made in various shapes (usually stemmed), sizes, and styles; each is said to be most suitable for a particular type of wine. In a specific sense, the term refers only to glasses intended for use at table for wine to accompany the meal, and excluding champagne glasses and other specialty glasses. In this sense, in a matching set of stemware, the wine glass is smaller than a goblet for water, but larger than glasses for sherry, port wine, or liqueur. In such a set, there may be separate glasses of distinctive form for white and for red wine. For similar but smaller drinking glasses used for serving other beverages, use "gin glasses" or another specific term.
