This vintage Apollo 11 commemorative drinking glass or tumbler celebrates the 1969 moon landing, and the lunar rover astronauts used to explore the surface of the moon. A golden circle frames a view of the inside of the glass, where we see James Irwin and David Scott riding in the rover while Alfred Worden orbits overhead.

Around the circle are various scenes in shiny metallic gold and white, against a beautiful sky blue background: the mighty Saturn V rocket lifting off, the lunar module on the surface of the moon, an astronaut descending the ladder to set foot on the moon, and two astronauts planting the American flag.

On the back are the Apollo 11 mission emblem and the words:

United States in Space
Alabama Space and Rocket Center
Huntsville, Alabama

A Decade of Achievement
Apollo XV "Rover" Aug. 2, 1971

There are also Neil Armstrong's famous first words on the moon (correctly rendered as "one small step for a man"!) and a replica of the Richard Nixon-signed plaque the astronauts left behind.

This glass was part of a series commemorating different aspects of the Apollo mission. Add it to your barware collection to serve space age cocktails, or place it on your shelf as a great period piece, and a reminder of the fascination, pride, and wonder surrounding the late 1960s space program in the United States.
