Product Description & Reviews

Somewhere Between a Martini Glass and a Coupe, the 1930s Nick and Nora Glass is Back. "The Thin Man" movies are still celebrated as the epitome of cocktail elegance. Besides witty dialogue, this series of six films with William Powell and Myrna Loy dabbles in mysteries, Martinis, and romance. Powell is Nick Charles, an elegant, urbane detective, and Nora is his stylish, sexy wife. These are movies in which the main characters start drinking when they get out of bed in the morning and don't stop till the case is solved several days later. They get a little tipsy, but no one gets falling-down-drunk. You might think it's old-school alcohol metabolism that keeps them afloat, but it's actually because the drinks they imbibe are really smaller than we are used to. It's a case of portion-size inflation that has taken over American dining and drinking. The glasses Nick and Nora used were about a third the size of the typical "Martini" glass nowadays. (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). The authentic Nick and Nora Martini Glass, perhaps the best known drink glass of its time, holds just over 6 ounces. It has been re-issued using the original glass molds of glasses manufactured in the 1930s, designed to withstand the rigors of the hospitality industry, and enthusiastically embraced in progressive cocktail culture. Offering a Gift Box Set of 2 Nick and Nora Glasses, for keeping or giving.
