Does anybody know where you can buy (if you can buy) this style of hurricane glass?

I recently found 2 of these at a flea market here in central florida, but they have the logo tiki face from the disney polynesian resort orlando, and say disney on them but they are cool for 1$ a piece.

All of the everyday glassware in my home bar is open stock from Libby. The big advantage to that is if you break stuff when you're intoxicated you can go down to the local restaurant supply store and easily replace. Your local restaurant supply store is sure to have open stock Hurricane glasses.

This is from the current Libbey catalog, page 50. Not exactly the same but pretty darn close. It was a drawing after all.


You can download the Libbey glassware catalog from
http://www.libbey.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=61&Itemid=89. I've found that my local restaurant supply store will only let be buy glasses by the dozen so you might be in for a few. They used to let my buy one at a time though so each store may differ.

Thank you for the link, I down loaded the catalog and am looking for a local distributor. Those are close enough for me.

But if somebody has some vintage ones like that in the Grog Log drawing they would like to sell please contact me.

Did you notice the Libbey tiki mugs in the catalog?

I'm glad that I was able to help. Libbey has made those tiki mugs for at least 3 years now though they could have been making them longer. They each come in 2 glazes and quality of the coloring and glaze thickness vary quite a bit. They retail for about $3 but have most recently been seen at dollar stores.

Those glasses are looking cooler and cooler to me, I might have to get some once I get a place with good glassware storage.

I saw a Pat O'Briens glass in this shape the other day at the thrift store. I didn't pick it up, but it caught my eye because it was so different than the MANY other Hurricane glasses I see from there all the time.

This glass is driving me nuts too.

The "Super Thistle" from libby is too big. Where is the plain ol' Thistle?

TV uses it for the molokia mike drink.
Huge props for whover can find it for me.

I think that the thistle design only comes in 21 ounces at this point and it looks like Libbey is the only one that I could find that makes it. Oddly enough it is used to serve Scottish Ale so that's why it has that shape. Not sure about the size though but 21 ounces of ale sounds good to me.
