Hello, I would like to learn more about the earliest shot glasses and I'm wondering if anyone can help me find some pictures and/or information about them. I've been able to find a few very thin ones from the late 1800's or early 1900's and pre-pro.com has been very helpful for the advertising glasses but not so much for the unmarked ones. Some just have gold rims, etched decorations, and/or cut decorations and one may even date back to the mid 1800's during or before the Civil War...it's thick, cobalt blue, and has a rough 6-sided bottom. Recently got a hand blown one with lots of tiny bubbles in it but not sure of the age. Just want to find out more about their rarity, value, and origins if it's possible. I have some pictures of them if anyone's interested. Thanks for any help you can give me!
