Cheers, grandpa

DSCF6153This glass must be nearly a hundred years old; it is always used as a champagne glass and that’s how I always think of it, although it’s not the traditional shape. The set I have belonged to my grandpa from when he had a pub called the Portland Arms in Cambridge. He died in 1950 and I have no idea how long he had these glasses for before that; he had the license for the pub from about 1924, but the glasses may have come from his father who also had a pub called the Fitzroy.

I love drinking from them, and here I am with some champagne, cheers grandpa!
