I bet most people don’t give a damn what they drink out of, as long as it’s clean and the right size for the drink. However, I appreciate some special types of glasses, such as a set of Ukrainian beer glasses made from very thin glass I got as a present.
Therefore, I suppose there is an audience for an Authentic British Style Imperial Pint Glass with Etched Seal, even though personally I think it’s just a plain ugly large glass. But if history is your thing, you might be impressed by some facts: the heavy ridge on the glass was designed to lessen the chance of shattering when stacked, but also to help drinkers hold the lass (and lessen the chance of shattering when dropped to the floor, probably). The glasses also have an etching of the European Union pint seal on them, and they are imported from Europe (which utterly fails to impress me, since I live there).
