Three smokey blue Scandi glasses...
« on: March 30, 2006, 01:45:56 PM »
Anyone recognise these strange spikey-handled beasties? They're not mine - I'm trying to ID them for a friend. They were bought in Denmark, and that's all I know about them!  :)

Good for giving to people you don't like and unwanted guests

Well that's the only reason I can see for having handles with spikes on them!  :lol:

Maybe the spikes would help the unwanted guest steady the glass in their hand (thus preventing red wine spillage), assuming they were a bit the worse for wear. I'm sure they would get the message and wouldn't return for a second visit :D

Perhaps it is a reminder to never leave a drinking glass alone in a nightclub, etc...  :(

If so, a very wise glass maker, indeed.  :o

Maybe everybody should be issued with one of those Holmegaard "neck glasses"  :lol: . No scope for malicious spiking then :D

Nic - do they work - or is it a case of one mis-movement and you end up with formerly mentioned red wine spillage? I've always wondered  :lol:

Hi Nic,

There is a set of 8 of these glasses (identical), along with a lidded bowl for sale here in Holland.
They are attributed to Nanny Still, 1958, Riihimaen Lasi Oy.

I love them by the way, especially the colour......one of my favourites.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....
