Product Description

Size: 12 oz

Founded in 1929, Duralex has been manufacturing glassware and tabletop products in la chapelle-saint-mesmin, a city in the heart of France. Since 1939, when Duralex invented the glass tempering process, the name Duralex has been associated with resilient glassware, thanks to their proprietary tempering process. The original tempered (toughened) picardie glasses are still in production in France and are known as the “original french tumblers.” The picardie glass is the perfect weight: functional yet stylish and feels extremely comfortable in the hand. They are equally suitable for cold or hot drinks, conveniently stackable, impact and chip resistant, microwave and dishwasher safe. With the help of continuous investments and commitment to quality, Duralex has reached a level of excellence that makes its products recognized throughout the world. Duralex is and will always remain a true french manufacturer of glassware and tabletop products, and is the only glass manufacturer that makes 100-percent of their products in France.

They are wonderful glasses that look great and are very durable.
M. Karazim
This is the perfect size and I will buy more of them since the kids love their morning juice served in these Duralex Picardie glasses.
Dr. Memory S. Hughes-Seaman
I've already dropped one and it didn't break--the glass seems very strong.

I bought a set in 2001 & immediately became a huge fan. They are elegant, classic, practical and almost unbreakable! I've dropped them on tiled floors on more than one occasion and they haven't broken. They are Tempered and 2.5 times stronger than regular glasses!
Then I moved and during the move, somehow the box I had packed them in went missing.. so I went immediately and got another set. Over the years I lost exactly 3 of them and when I went to replenish these I was told they've stopped manufacturing them! I couldn't believe it! I would have people come over and as soon as they'd see my glasses they'd talk about how they've been looking for these everywhere. I even had friends trying to buy them from me. They are literally THE icons in glassware. They are dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe and you can get them in the following sizes (the ones that have a metric measurement I've measured myself:

3.75 oz (11 cl) - 2.6" (6.7 cm) Height x 2.5" (6.4 cm) Diameter at the top
4.25 oz (12.5 cl) - 2.8" Height x 2.9" Diameter at the top
5.75 oz (16 cl) - 3.0" (7.8 cm) Height x 2.8" (7.5 cm) Diameter at the top
7.75 oz (22 cl) - 3.2" Height x 3.2" Diameter at the top
8.75 oz (25 cl) - 3.5" (8.8 cm) Height x 3.25" (3.4 cm) Diameter at the top - Name: "Old Fashioned"
10.5 oz (31 cl) - 3.6" Height x 3.35" Diameter at the top
12 oz (36 cl) - 4.875"(12.3 cm) Height x 3.4" (8.7 cm) Diameter at the top - Name: "Euro Highball"
16.75 oz (50 cl) - 5.75" (14.4 cm) Height x 3.7" (9.4 cm) Diameter at the top - Name: "Highball"

I use the small 5.75 oz glass for having Persian tea (since the color is important and has to be served in a clear glass), I use the 8.

I added this review to make sure there would be one more 5 star review for Duralex. There are few products out there that are just plain the best in their class. This is one of them. Believe all of the other positive reviews. My wife had a few Duralex glasses from the 1970's (!) and we got sick of trying to augment them with normal (e.g. Pier 1 issh) glasses, and how heavy they were and easily they broke. We decided to buy Duralex a few years ago and found that they were kaput! We couldn't believe it. We searched the Web, eBay, etc. and nothing (except black market prices). We searched harder and found that there was a hidden stash in an Ann Arbor MI store, and bought boxes and boxes. Gave boxes to family members. But we knew that was it. NOW...someone got a clue and started manufacturing them, thank God. Read the other reviews for the reasons you'll enjoy them and keep them in your family. But buy them.

p.s. our own personal trivia contest entry - I spotted one in a movie - the 1937 version of Bride of Frankenstein !!! I kid you not. I can't attach pics or I would show the scene - you can find it on YouTube - look for Bride of Frankenstein, I think chunk 7...Dr. Frankenstein says he can't concentrate because of the monster (Karloff) and Dr. Praetorius says "I will deal with him". He pours some Brandy in a small glass, then sneaks some knockout drops in it, and hands it to the monster. "Drink GOOD". As the director does a closeup on Karloff drinking the Brandy you see the glass and even the writing on the bottom....wait for it....it's a Duralex!!! The funniest part - he empties it, then gets woozy and drops the glass on the stone floor, and if you listen hard, you can hear it bounce FIVE TIMES AND NOT BREAK. I shat you not. I am laughing even now, just typing this. So even James Whale (director) and Boris Karloff were fans of Duralex!!!! (ad campaign? "So strong, even your little monster won't break it").

The Duralex Picardie model is the ubiquitous glassware of France. The 25cl size (sometimes incorrectly referred to as 8 3/4 oz.) is the standard model. It is beautifully curved to fit in the hand, tapers down from the arches under the rim to nine flat sides so that it may be easily grasped without slipping even when wet, has just the right weight and balance, and has a lip thin enough to drink comfortably from while retaining strength.

Graceful is the one best word to describe them, the perfect combination of beauty and utility.

In French cafés you will see people drinking water, wine, and even coffee from them. You can spot them in many films (The 400 Blows and Breathless come to mind) and they frequently found their way into modern still life paintings.

Duralex went into court-ordered liquidation bankruptcy in 2006 but has since partnered with Emile Henry, an old French manufacturer of cooking ware, to return to production and distribution of this classic glassware. During the hiatus, it was not unusual to see a set of six of the larger ones sell for over $100 on the secondary market, which is testimony to their status as a desirable design icon of the 20th century.

Each glass was manufactured with a number on the bottom, from 1-48, identifying the mold it was made in. These numbers provided amusement for many generations of school children in France and other European countries.

The only possible criticism of these glasses is that they are not designed to stack securely.
