Champagne Cocktail Glasses.  Perfect for Serving Guests on a Cole Porter Evening.

"In olden days a glimpse of stocking was looked on as something shocking," wrote Cole Porter, "Now heaven knows, anything goes." Every morning at half-past seven Porter would leap out of bed at his home in the Left Bank of Paris and arrange himself in a riding habit. Then, after writing a song or two, he would appear at the stroke of half-past twelve at the hotel bar, where he would say “Champagne Cocktail, please -- had a marvelous ride this morning!”

These de-lovely glasses were inspired by Porter's world of penthouse soirees, clever bon mots over cocktails at opening night parties. And what better better way to re-live Parisian cocktail culture than by sipping Champagne from these elaborately-etched glasses that fully accentuate the sophistication of that time and place. The vintage "lace and dots" design crawls suavely across each glass, livening the allure of the bubbly inside.
