Mister Loco:
I wonder if anyone knows how many different sizes were produced in this range?  Thanks.

chopin-liszt:
3.
They were designed by Annette Meech. I bought my first set in 1975, 6 large glasses, boxed set, 3.45 from Boots.
They all got broken, but I have since ammassed a large collection from charity shops and from friends, I use them all the time.

Mister Loco:
My Apollo glasses have just arrived and it seems there a four sizes according to the box:
1: Schnapps/Port/Sherry 2: Wine/Spirit 3: Mixer/Drink/Wine and 4: Beer/lager.
Lovely classic design and made in England!

chopin-liszt:
Sincere apologies!  :-[
I only use the big ones - the half-pint size.

Please would anyone who has any of these glasses please report on their height and capacity, so that eventually we will be able to identify individual glasses.   As always, please use the measuring system that you are happiest with.   We can do the conversions once we have the information in.   Heights should be measured in millimetres, centimetres, inches with decimals, or inches with fractions.   Capacities should be measured in litres, pints, or fluid ounces (see your Pyrex measuring jug), or just tell us how many full glasses make one litre or one pint.   If you must include conversions, please always put calculated conversions in parentheses.

So, for example:

* 69.5mm 2.75" would indicate that you had measured the glass twice, once in metric and once in imperial.
* 69.5mm (2.75") would indicate that you had measured the glass in metric and calculated the conversion.Bernard C.  8)
