I'd like to know the meaning of the expression 'cut-glass'.

I researched and the only definition who keeps coming up it's certainly not the one I need, which is "Glass shaped or decorated by cutting instruments or abrasive wheels".
I read it in a book, and I think it's something closer to refined, classy. I'd really appreciate if you could help me clear this up.
