Old Knickerbocker Bar "Top Hat" Cocktail Glass$29.95
Offering the Old Knickerbocker Bar Cocktail Glass, faithfully reproduced from the original Morgantown Glassworks pattern. Each glass is crafted with an iconic stem in the shape of a dapper gentleman with a top hat, an homage to John Jacob Astorís New York and a symbol of American capitalism.
The Edwardian headwear, de rigueur for patrons of "The Forty-Second Street Country Club," provided inspiration for a cocktail glass with an exceedingly aristocratic air. Each glass has a lower center of gravity and its sides are less shallow than a modern glass. Its flat-bottomed bowl gives it a better balance, making a drink harder to spill. Its solid, figurative stem keeps your warm hand away from the drink and makes it more comfortable to hold.
This Gift Box Set of 2 "Top Hat" Cocktail Glasses (including a history of the era) has a certain sensibility about it, calling to mind the sophistication of the Old Knickerbocker Bar. A gentlemanís reward, for keeping or giving. (Specifications: Height: 5 1/2"; Rim Diameter: 3 1/4Ē; Capacity: 4 1/4 ounces)
