Glassware Collection

Here you’ll find my collection of glassware, drinkware, and barware, much of it gleaned from Atlanta-area antique shops. I’m still attempting to find information on most of the pieces, so if you have some specific info that I’m lacking, be sure to get in touch! I’d appreciate it!

Also, this page will be slowly updated over time…by no means is the entire collection viewable.

The information for each piece is listed below the photograph.

For All Glassware: Any nicknames that I use are in quotes, e.g. “Nick and Nora,” and are not “official,” just a name I use to differentiate.

    Hi, I was wondering if you have any idea of how to acquire a tumbler like the crystal double old fashioned you have. My great grandmother had a set, but in her old age dropped it and I am trying to find a replacement for her. This is the only picture I’ve seen of it. Thank you

      Hi Alexander,
      Unfortunately, I don’t know what the make of that particular tumbler is, and I haven’t seen any others like it recently. I found them in an Atlanta antique store. You may be able to find it on http://www.replacements.com/ but that’s a large databse to sort through (it’s more useful for stemware). Good luck in your hunt!

    Are there glasses illustrated here for sale If so, how does one go about buying them?

      Hi, Tony!
      No, none of them are currently for sale. The page was originally intended as a resource that folks could use to look up glassware and see what kind of options are out there — in addition to bragging rights, on my part : )

      If I do decide to sell off a few of them, I’ll let you know.

      In the meantime, take a look at the glassware store over at Summit Sips — they’ve got some good stuff:

    Cristal D’Arques-Durand in the Volute pattern
