Custard glasses are generaly bigger than these tiny things. I think it was eaten with a spoon rather than drank

I would love to think that these are child's glasses or traveller's samples but I suspect that they're probably just liqueur glasses for parsimonius hosts. Many thanks for the input, everyone!
