Very pretty.


Love it!

And, I love all the more that it's *not* a martini glass!

I love wine (no secret), and I am also notorious for breaking stemware... so, we drink wine from low, footed glasses very similar to your sherbet dish...

I always feel very cutting edge when I pour a glass... and, I feel very smug when one makes it through another wash.

Drink one for me!


Very appropriate... in the south it is referred to as Depression Glass as most of it was made in the depression era and was what was given at weddings since no one could afford crystal. Also try binging for milk glass as it is quite interesting as well.

Non-traditional good choice, I'd say.


I'd definitely recommend hand washing for that baby! Don't want to lose that shine or that color. Very cool that it matches the Bombay bottle!


Suzette, your "martini glass" is charming. A great choice.

Kings Crown is highly collectible. Pressed glass, it dates back to the 1890s - somewhat before "Depression Glass" and finer in quality. It was also more expensive. I believe I heard that Depression Glass was originally given by the piece as premiums at gas stations.

As you can see from this Kings Crown collector's website the stuff is highly addictive.

I love old glass. I love old almost everything.


My only problem with you moving to WordPRess is the countless hours Il Proprieatario will spend carefully wrapping the crystal for shipping.

Cripes, Suzette!

I know - when he's got bigger fish all around, too. It keeps me up at

What "bigger fish"? Running for re-election in Podunk-on-the-Passaic? Snarking at Obama? Preparing your infographics?

Well, OK. That last one *is* important.


Love that glass! We have a set around here but they are more traditional amber color. Brings back good memories of eating pudding out of them as a tot.

What a pretty color. Love your style!
