Planning a cocktail party and want to show off your mid century modern design savvy? Up for grabs are these chic Dorothy Thorpe "Allegro" tall narrow cocktail glasses, perfect for bourbon, punch, or apertifs. I have shown only 4 but the sale is for a set of 8, all in perfect party-ready condition. Thorpe is well known for the "Roly" collection glasses which were used in Don Draper's office, and on rolling bar carts in the Sterling Cooper office on Mad Men. Thorpe designed glassware in the 1950s and the rims were silver dipped and have a mirror finish. These glasses, from the Allegro line, are perfect for a mixed drink with small ice cubes or punch drinks, are all in excellent gently used condition with no chips or cracks. They are not chubby like a big ass modern contain glass; they are a horn shaped tapered style and are perfect for your mid century man cave or home bar. Your cocktail party guests will swoon. Each is 5-5/8 tall; 3" diameter at rim The 70s orange tray is not included, sorry. Located in Williamsburg near the L at Lorimer Street, Montrose Avenue, the G at Broadway, the J/M/Z at Broadway. I am around many days and evenings for pickup. I can deliver curbside in the city (not Staten Island or the Bronx) for 10 dollars.
