One For The Road

Something about sipping a full-bodied bourbon after work brings you right back to that local watering hole where everyone actually did know your name. Whether you had your initials carved on the corner bar or you simply miss your favorite metropolis, this etched glass set lets you raise a toast to hidden gems and great memories with designer detail.

Created by Boston-based designer Brian Johnson, these glasses feature an intricate city map that sprawls along the curves of the vessel. Interspersed street names and the locale's coordinates offer an unexpected way to show off your own stomping grounds. Glasses made in Ohio and etched in New Hampshire.

Sold individually.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

    Comments about CITY MAP GLASS:

    Bought a pair of these for a friend who was missing her home town. She was thrilled beyond belief she say "they're so beautiful she almost doesn't want to use them." Perfect for someone looking for a personal and unique gift. The price is right as a thoughtful gift between college students well. Just an all around great experience and product.

      I gave the Washington D.C. glasses to my boyfriend who is moving across the country. He was impressed with how unique and well made they are. They look unique and stylish and are a great way to incorporate his hometown into his new place.

          My husband mentioned he would like some Austin souvenir glasses and I looked in many stores without finding anything quite as chic. I really liked the Austin map and sleek design of the glasses.

                    Beautifully etched glasses that make a great gift for that hard to buy for person in your life. I bought my father teo of these glasses of their summer home city and coasters from this same site of their winter home city. He really enjoyed this present and the quality of the items was first rate.

                      I cant believe I had to pay for shipping on this item. It is only 1 glass - not two like the picture shows. The etching is so poor everything is hard to read. Its just a mess and a waste of money. Only 1 glass arrived - the pictures all show 2 glasses... my bad - but I feel duped! I would have returned them both anyway. The glass is small and feels thin. Debating if the return shipping charges are worth the cost of the glass refund. Such a bummer.
