Who knew drinking glasses could be classic works of art? The French have left many a legacy to the world, from the Eiffel Tower to beautiful works of art toâ€¦Duralex glasses. Yes, Duralex glasses.
First created and designed in the 1920s, Duralex glasses have become the standard, even iconic glassware of French bistros and cafes, and was also a staple in French school cafeterias. The patented tempered glass of which Duralex glasses are made with make them nearly unbreakable. Its sleek and simple design is probably what has made it such a timeless piece of glassware.
The simplicity of the Duralex glass is probably why it also lends itself to be deemed the anti-establishment wine glass. For those who find the long-stemmed wine glasses too pretentious, Duralex glasses are the perfect instrument to use when enjoying a nice drink of wine.
Duralex glasses come in different sizes, but all with its tempered glass that also makes them ideal for both cold and hot drinks. And while they have been around for over eighty years, the fact that they are both charming and durable make the great items to have in oneâ€™s kitchen (and once you get a hold of a Duralex glass, considering its durability, that glass will be with you for a very, very long time).
