Long Live the Duralex Picardie Tumbler

Even if you've never owned a Duralex Picardie Tumbler, I'd be willing to bet you've sipped from one. Created in 1927 and long ubiquitous French bistros, the Picardie is easily one of the most popular tumbler designs of all time. The fluted sides fit snugly into hands of all sizes, and the incredibly durable glasses really do tumble, rather than break, when dropped.

The glasses are becoming tougher to find, but you can still buy them online, and they're still a total steal. A set of four 8.5-ounce glasses costs about $12.

All of which brings me to my latest discovery: the Cucina Dolce Votive Candle Holder ($3). Using the Picardie as inspiration, the high-end kitchen brand has created a very cute votive container for anyone nostalgic for the design. You can also get it complete with a candle: I would love to light this Cucina Dolce Espresso Bean Scented Candle in Glass ($12) in my kitchen.

thanks for the tip about these glasses- i love them so went online per the link and bought some- the company that sells them is so easy to deal with- and they ship to canada.

super cute glasses... too bad we have my mom's set (green), my set (blue glass) and my hubby's set (3 types of clear glasses) ... i think we could break a glass everyday for a year and still haev enough.

I really don't like tumblers. I'd rather have a bigger glass in a funky shade of cobalt blue. These are too classic looking for my tastes.

I can't say that I've ever used one of these tumblers but I like them and am going to be on the look out for some.
