In “Cause and Effect”, Dr. Crusher breaks this glass. Anybody have a clue who the manufacturer/brand this glass is from and/or the model?

  • @ThePopMachine: Comparing against the grainy blown-up image that I can now actually see, I don't see any obvious differences compared to Valorum's link. Maybe the cup is a bit shallower? But it's hard to tell with her thumb covering it.

    It’s a cordial glass. They hold significantly less than a champagne flute (1-2 oz rather than 6 or so). Aug 8 '18 at 3:49
  • Compare also any of these glasses.

    @Rere play it in a web browser and screenshot the browser. Aug 8 '18 at 9:26

    @ThePopMachine - consider cosplayers, set design or episode detail researchers or any number of other reasons why any given item in a well known franchise might be of interest to somebody

My good friend Alan Sims (Props Master for TNG) advises me via email that while he can't recall the specific glass used, given that it was used in a scene where it broke, it was almost certainly provided by their long-term supplier Alfonso's Breakaway Glass Inc.

There's an extremely similar glass (marked as a "liqueur glass") in their current catalogue.

    Didn’t actually know what a breakaway glass is. Called them. Now I know. Won’t serve my purpose unfortunately unless I rly only wanna look at it on the shelf

  • That's the type of glass that schnapps is usually drunk from in Denmark. Aug 9 '18 at 8:28
  • Looks like it except the Danish schnapps glasses look generally shorter
