Choosing and Buying Crystal Glass Tumblers

This article is a Guide to help you understand the terminolgy of the China and Glass industry and to help you make an informed decision when choosing and buying crystal Glass Tumblers.

The China and Glass Industry has many different terms used for describing a Tumbler which essentially is a glass without a Stem. I will run through a number that I have encountered and give my interpretation of what they mean.

  • Old Fashioned Tumbler or O.F. Tumbler - Usually a straight side tumbler where the sides are straight or slightly taper in to the base. The capacity is normally 5oz for whisky also known as a Rocks glass, 10oz for mixers or water, 12oz known as Double Old Fashioned or D.O.F also for larger mixers and water.
  • Rummer Tumbler - Same in size terms as the Old Fashioned but traditionally the straight sides have a slight curve to the base.
  • Barrel Tumbler - Once again the sizes are the same as the Old Fashioned but the sides curve forming a barrel shape.
  • Highball Tumblers, Slim Jim Tumbler, Tom Collins Tumblers - Are all taller tumblers and used for long drinks and water. The Highball or Hiball holds about 12 to 14oz and measures around Height 15cm Diameter 7.5cm. The Slim Jim and Tom Collins tend to be taller and narrower hold 10 to 12oz and measure around Height 16cm Diameter 6.5cm.

Most wine suites have a range of tumblers but it is not essential that they match the Wine Glasses. Ultimately the choice is governed by personal taste and budget and is more to do with your own tipple.

At Havens we have Glass Tumblers that cover just about every shapeFeature Articles, size and style to suit all tastes and budgets.
