I could not leave these beauties behind when I found them recently. They’re in mint condition. Pale pink and black scene of two Chinese men among ombre white to pale pink cherry blossoms by a pink pagoda. One figure is holding a lantern, the other is carrying two water containers on a pole. Glasses are printed all the way around. No chips, no marks, no flaws. Beautiful addition to any vintage bar ware collection.

Cocktail culture gained momentum in the 1920s during prohibition with speak easies, flappers, and many classic cocktails were created to hide the less than delicious taste of bootleg liquor. The first cocktail party is attributed to Clara Bell Walsh in 1917. In the 1920s women were breaking free of domestic restraints and younger women were rolling down their stockings, kicking up their heels, and enjoying cocktails at speakeasies. By the 1960s, middle class Americans made cocktail parties de riguer, with fondue, hors d’oevres, and a plethora of innovative libations inspired by cultures around the world. Things got a little more saucy in the 70s, and by the 1980s cocktail parties fell out of vogue.
