Starbursts Vs. Amoebas. Oooh...The Battle Is ON! Status: On Like Donkey Kong!
Which do YOU think better represents the Mid-Twentieth-Century Aesthetic? Vote for your favorite!
These, as far as I know, are referred to as Parfait glasses. I use them as beer
glasses as well. I think they might be by Libbey. Nice black and gold amoebas or
These look like very small Martini Glasses, but I think they are for sipping small
amounts of strong liqueur. I used buy this liqueur called Kashmir. It's unfortunately
no longer available, but these glasses would be perfect for sipping it. Aren't the
delicate little cut Starbursts amazing?
More Biomorphic Amoebas! Water glasses. I still keep them at the bar. Great for
Cuba Libres (rum & Coke)!
More Mystery size glassware. Too big to be Shot Glasses, but too little for a mixed
drink! Again, I use them to serve sipping drinks. These have beautiful cut multi
bursts on each side.
So which do you prefer? Starburst or Amoebas? It's up to you, the reader to decide!
