I bought this set of 6 little wine glasses a long time ago. A LONG time ago. Long, long. And over the intervening years, all but one managed to hurl themselves straight toward a hard surface and smash. Last summer as I strolled through a little antique shop, what should my wondering eyes behold but 5 .. count ‘em … FIVE … of the exact glasses. They are nobody’s idea of fine crystal … but they are mine again … and it’s nice to have them back home (Montgomery County, Maryland).
