No Longer Lost in Time, the 1930s Nick and Nora Glass is Back.  Gold-Gilded Limited Edition.

Somewhere between a Martini glass and a traditional coupe, the Nick and Nora glass, named after the cinematic husband-and-wife detective team of "The Thin Man" movies, brings back the stylized sophistication of 1930s high life.  Evocative of speakeasies, the glasses Nick and Nora used were about a third the size of today's typical "Martini" glass.  The best known cocktail glass of its time holds just over 6 ounces.   In one scene, Nora comes in.  He hands her a drink.  She asks him how much he’s had.  “This will make six Martinis,” he says, so she orders five more to keep up.

Re-issued using the original molds of glasses manufactured in the 1930s, these extraordinary pieces are designed to withstand the rigors of the hospitality industry, enthusiastically embraced in progressive cocktail culture. Offering a Limited Edition of "Nick and Nora" Crystal Cocktail Glasses, each extremely refined with gold-gilded rim.  Excellent for dinner parties or any occasion where glamour is requested.  Gift Box Set of 2, for keeping or giving.
