Antique Barware

If you drink cordials or sherry or port, why not consider antique barware? The glassware is really beautiful and you can still find many pieces in very good condition. I have a love and a passion for antique glassware and am always on the lookout for unique items.  Recently I have been able to find several antique wine glass sets that are perfect for port and after dinner cordials.  I even found some sherry glasses in the Duncan Miller Mardi Gras pattern.  How cool is that? Our ancestors' wine glasses held about 3 ounces and cordials held about 2 ounces.  Most are imitation cut glass because most people of the early and pre-1900s could not afford expensive cut glass, but the imitation cut glass can easily fool you.  Wine was very expensive and was not a part of the dinner menu.  It was served after dinner. In addition, wine was far stronger in our ancestors' time than it is today, so you did not want to drink too much. Water was the main dinner drink.  For our ancestors, a cordial was a small drink served to someone who just happened to drop by. If you think you may be interested in some antique barware, or even tumblers for use as "on the rocks" glasses, keep an eye on Repeat Boutique 2.  I'll be listing more antique barware soon. Even if you don't drink, take a look at these beautiful glases.
