    I'm looking for more obscure glasses now that I have a fairly thorough collection. One of the glasses that caught my eye is a stemmed pokal glass

    Images for this glass are hard to come by. More often you see a rounded shape, but I'm looking for something stemmed and squared. Anyone have a good lead on this one? Branded or unbranded.

    That looks good! I had envisioned, or read in some book, that they were smaller than 10 oz but maybe I'm making that up. Thanks for the tip

    I found this thread while looking for some information on Pokal glasses. I purchased two of these glasses today. There is a "fill" line that reads 0.2L about an inch and a half from the rim of the glass. So, with head, a fifth of a liter is what the one I have holds.

    Interestingly, I poured Celebrator into it. That link from GrindFatherBob shows a proper pokal glass with Celebrator branding on it, but that is most definitely not Celebrator in the glass for the photo. This fine double bock is much darker in color.
