Stork Club Champagne Coupe (Swanky Set of 2)$24.00
With the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, the air was filled with the sound of clinking glasses, not in tall flutes, but in swellegant, bowl-shaped coupes. Champagne coupes have lost none of their charm or sophistication since the days when Sherman Billingsley’s Stork Club was New York City’s most enchanting nightclub. Anybody who was anybody had bottle of Champagne sent to their table, immediately upon arrival -- compliments of the house. Chronicler of the Stork Club, Lucius Beebe wrote: “There is no food or time of the day and night when the service of Champagne is not both appropriate and agreeable.”
Inspired by New York's legendary Stork Club, we're on a mission to bring back the original Champagne Coupes. Marilyn Monroe, Truman Capote, Audrey Hepburn, Liz Taylor, Bogey and Bacall -- they all drank deeply and glamorously from the well of the classic coupe. With its broad surface, the coupe allows bubbles to tickle your nose. It evokes a time when everyone had more fun. A good glass will enhance the drink, and make the drinker happy to be holding it. Flutes went out with extravagance; celebrate with coupes in the new austerity.
Offered are the genuine, original Champagne Coupes as popularized at New York’s Stork Club. Each swellegant glass stands 4 ˝-inches tall and holds 5 ˝-ounces of bubbly, its bowl-shape allowing for a greater appreciation of the bouquet of the drink. When you hold them, you feel fabulous. (Serve Champagne from a tray of these glasses at your next party). Gift Box includes beverage coasters from the legendary club.
