SHIPS FREE!!! A pair of 1950's Tipsy Martini glasses w faces painted on them. They feature a bent stem and a crooked glass. These are about half the size of modern martini glasses.

The 1951 Gay Fad catalog urges buyers to “Add hilarity to the party! Serve the third round of drinks in bent and distorted Beau Brummels cocktail glasses.”

The story behind Fran Taylor’s Beau Brummel Cocktail Glasses: “The story goes that Gay Fad’s first bent-stem cocktail glasses were an “oops!” caused by a malfunctioning firing oven that overheated to the point where it melted the glass and bent the stems. But rather than discarding the distorted glasses, Fran Taylor decided she liked the look and a whole new line of bent-stem glasses was born!

Libbey bent stem martini glasses stand 6 inches tall.
