Tabletop: Picardie Glasses at DWR

BY Julie Carlson

Designed in 1936 and made of almost indestructible tempered glass, the Picardie bistro tumbler is an icon of Parisian cafe life. The manufacturer, Duralex, stopped production a couple of years ago, creating a panic among Picardie loyalists. Now the glass is back, and on sale, at DWR. A set of six Small Picardie Glasses is $21.25 and a set of six Large Picardie Glasses is $21.25 (both down from $25); shipping is free.
