Ahhh... yes, the Vic's Morgantown series - verrrry nice! I've got one of these (and the large 8 oz. champagne compote glass as well - still missing the beveled mid-sized 4 1/2 oz. glass*, however... - anybody got one?), but I don't know why all sellers seem to think this is a "Mai Tai" glass: it only holds 3 1/2 oz!! A 3 1/2 oz mai tai?? Trader Vic never served mai tais in it; according to the info I have, Vic didn't serve mai tais (or wine, for that matter) in any of the 'tiki-stem' glasses!
*btw, this one is featured on page 95 of BOT, and I think that because Sven referred to them as "... the Holy Grail of the tiki collector: a union of cocktail and Tiki culture" folks think they are extremely rare. Personally, I think the "Holy Grail" refers to its grail shape, rather than its rarity.
But still awesome glassware, no doubt about it!

Check out this auction that ended the other day! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3156003566 ....this was actually a sweet deal for the buyer...seller could have made a small fortune if they sold these one at a time seeing as they have gone for as much as $300.00 each. We have 2 out of the 3 different syles in our personal collection. We still need the large compote, so the search continues....
