For French bistro style, this set of six pastis glasses from 51 will be an extra-special addition to your bar or kitchen. They are about 30 years old, promotional material given by the 51 liquor company to cafés and bars. This shape of pastis glasses is quite uncommon, as 30 years ago the slimmer shot-type glasses called "momies" were more common as giveaway material.

The pastis glasses are about 4 inches or 10 cm high. Please look at the fourth photo to see how they fit in a woman's hand. Two of the glasses have very minor chipping on their rims (see last photo). These will come to you in a recycled cardboard box.

A note on pastis: If the south of France had an official drink, pastis would be it. One of the images that most come to mind when you talk of the south: men playing petanque while imbibing this liquor. It's an anise-flavored drink served diluted with water, so that the clear yellow liquid that pours from the bottle becomes a milky opaque yellow in the glass. There are different brands of pastis available in the bars of France, 51 being one of them.
