Up a Level Glass Gaffes What'sIt??? Every so often we come across a glass that is wonderfully detailed and highly attractive but whose meaning has been lost in the proverbial sands of time.  If anyone has any ideas that could shed light on the origins of these glasses, please get in touch with the glassmaster.  Thanks!

"Only Spanish will be spoken here until further notice".  A demon ponders the posting.  A ripple in the calm waters of Spanish-American relations perhaps?
