There were two nice contenders for Shot of the Week this past week, both with a horsey theme, which is only appropriate given the running yesterday of the KY Derby. The first was a Jockey Club that sold for a King's ransom, reflecting both its rarity and the fact that it was a San Fran glass.
But the one I liked best was the "Driving Club" shown below. The listing read "A RARE PRE-PRO ANTIQUE ETCHED SHOT GLASS ADVERTISING DRIVING CLUB PURE RYE WHISKEY PRODUCED BY L. KAHN & CO. CLEVELAND, OHIO USA! This Wonderful Shot Glass With SUPERB GRAHICS Features A Etched Stagecoach Center! It Still Retains its Gold Rim Band with NO CHIPS, CRACKS, and Has NEVER Been Ground! "
This is only the second such glass that I've seen. The label looks to be a little on the weak side (may be a problem with the photo rather than the glass) but it is a beauty. A classic pre-pro picture glass!
Clint Baker put up a valiant fight but in the end the glass fell to 2hotjazz for $47.10. Congratulations too-hot!
Here's a glass to watch for
the coming week:
