Discreet Charm of the Cocktail Glass, Circa 1922.
Every decade in New York, someone comes along and serves as an emblem for the time. During the 1920s, that person was Zelda Fitzgerald, the wife of novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald. Among the crop of young women, Zelda epitomized the 1920s with her bobbed hair, short skirts and unapologetic merrymaking, as she made her way through the most exclusive social circles in New York.
She proved herself provocative to the point of exhaustion, frolicking in the Plaza Hotel or riding down Fifth Avenue on the roof of a taxi, buoyed along on a cascade of cocktails, served in the era's diminutive stemware. The smaller-size glass, a fashionable cousin of the coupe, required sipping three, four, five or six drinks instead of guzzling just one from a big clumsy glass.
Offered is a Gift Box Set of 2 Zelda Fitzgerald "New Yorker" Cocktail Glasses, the whimsically-etched design inspired by vivacious Zelda Fitzgerald who had all of New York City – and much of the nation – wrapped around her little finger. For keeping or giving.
