While we have 'nice glasses' for when we have guests, we don't really like them for day-to-day use because they are too heavy. Our beloved day-to-day glasses are nice and light and have a lovely hand feel. Unfortunately they are showing the signs of age and through gradual breakage we are getting rather low in number.
The old glass
It may look like this is a dirty glass but in fact is just the long slow effect of etching from being in the dishwasher a few times. Actually more than a few as we bought these some time in the mid-1980's. So I'm thinking these are at least 25 year old glasses. They've done their duty well.
Wife broke one on Tuesday night and that was it. She was in Target and found these for just a dollar a piece.
