Collectible U.S. Beer Glasses For Sale

Pre-prohibition glasses include both etched and embossed.

The styles include: barrel, sham, pilsner, tulip, hourglass, shell, goblet and mug.

NOTE:  While some items may be in a new or unused condition, most are slightly used and in excellent condition - unless stated otherwise. Also, these are primarily collectible glasses and quantities on hand are noted (in this brown text) - there is usually only the single example available.
