Quintessential Glass in the Heyday of the Home Bar.

With a dramatic growth of affluence in the 1950s, couples retreated to the suburbs, and home cocktail parties epitomized the decade’s popular lifestyle image. The domestic bar became the crown jewel of home ownership, a boozy playground for the American male, and mixing cocktails at home became one of the manly arts, like carving a turkey.

And a glass called the “Roly Poly” came to define mid-Century drinking in America. All about comfort and fitting nicely in the hand, each glass holds just the right amount for a cocktail or a dram of a favorite scotch or bourbon. Why the name? If you place one on its side, it rolls back to an upright position.
