Nick & Nora Martini Glasses ("Thin Man" Collection)$29.95
Have a wonderful crime with Nick and Nora.
"The Thin Man" is still celebrated as the epitome of cocktail elegance. Besides witty dialogue, this series of six films with William Powell and Myrna Loy dabbles in mysteries, martinis, and romance. Powell is Nick Charles, an elegant, urbane detective, and Nora is his stylish, sexy wife. These are movies in which the main characters start drinking when they get out of bed in the morning and don't stop till the case is solved several days later.
You might think itís their old-school alcohol metabolism that keeps them afloat, but itís actually because the drinks Nick and Nora Charles imbibe are really much smaller than we are used to. It's a case of the dreadful portion-size inflation that has taken over American dining and drinking. The glasses Nick and Nora used were about a third the size of the typical "martini" glass nowadays. (In one scene, Nora comes in. He hands her a drink. She asks him how much heís had. ďThis will make six martinis,Ē he says, so she orders five more to keep up).
The authentic Nick and Nora Martini Glass, perhaps the best known drink glass of its time, holds a more practical 6 ounces. It has been re-issued using the original glass molds of glasses manufactured in the 1930s, in thermo-shock toughened crystal, dishwasher-safe and designed to withstand the rigors of the hospitality industry. Recapture classic cocktail service from a bygone era. The Gift Box Set of 2 Nick and Nora Glasses includes a "Thin Man Drinking Companion" with quips and quotes from the classic film.
