Product Description

The English Lines, the German Lines, the Italian Lines and, of course, the French Line all used varying glasses for a wide variety of wines.  Not the United States lines, it seems.  How American is this?  The USL had what the catalog calls a “general wine glass.”  This seems to have done duty for reds, whites, desert wines, etc.  Very practical and straight forward.  Intriguingly, there must have been a large number of these on board, but this is the first time I have ever had one.  Comes to us from the collection of a United States Lines manager, who visited the Big Ship after layup and removed this glass (and many others) himself.  Measures about 4″ 2.5″ and in excellent condition.
