With Father’s Day around the corner, it seems a good time to explore some gifts for the barware enthusiast in your life!
Vintage Beer Glasses. We got these many years ago from Elise Abrams Antiques. A search on eBay for Vintage Beer glasses by Libbey will turn up some interesting choices, or try Pilsner Glasses by Libbey at Replacements.
Vintage Whiskey Glasses – for sipping whiskey with a splash of water. These are actually juice glasses in the Buttercup pattern by Fostoria. Replacements is an excellent source for elegant Depression Glass. Search for juice glasses and narrow your choices to Cambridge, Fostoria and Tiffin-Franciscan. The creamer in the same pattern makes a great add-on, as it can be used for the touch of water.
Mixology Books. These are all from Cocktail Kingdom, a great source for modern cocktail accoutrements.
Vintage Bar Plates. These are the Florentine English Pub plates by Crown Ducal, acquired on eBay a couple of years ago. Crown Ducal also made an Art Deco set of six which can sometimes be had on eBay. There are lots of modern bar plates to be had, too, from places like Pier 1, Crate & Barrel and Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Mason Jar Mugs with Handles. Great for picnics, outdoor patio dining, or to take to the beach. They’re readily available from any number of places including Amazon.com. You can get a lidded version with a drinking straw, too.
Have a wonderful Monday!
