Topic: Duralex Picardie glass

Hi guys,
this week I've acquired a realy cheap Skyfall prop. The glass at the scorpion bar, from which Bond has taken his drink with the scorpion on his hand is a Picardie (22 cl or 25 cl) from the french manufacturer Duralex.

On the following screenshot (from "shadow of reflection“) you can only guess that it is a Duralex glass, but you can see and read the brand very good on the Skyfall blu-ray.

You can find this glass in some well-graded hardware stores or in liquor stores near you and of course at amazon or ebay for approx. § 20 for a set of six.

Re: Duralex Picardie glass

I think the 25 cl (8 3/4 oz) is the right size and shown on my photos.
But the difference in the height are only 6 mm (0,24") between the 25 cl and the 22 cl glass. Therefore it is difficult to say without knowing how big Daniel Craig's hands are.  ajb007/lol

Here is an exemplary link to one offer at amazon.com:

Duralex has a long cinematic history. Here's a clip from the classic 1935 film 'Bride of Frankenstein':

Interestingly, these were the glasses that my family had when I was a little kid! Both the style used in SF, and the taller version as well.

Re: Duralex Picardie glass

100% correct
even written about in the official Duralex brochure

http://www.duralex.com/index.php?q=prod … amp;mod=63

then click on download the brochure



PICARDIE, THE TIMELESS STAR !
Its unique shape, sensual curves that fit perfectly in the hand, its facets that ideally catch the light, its hemmed lips that blossom out: here is Picardie... There is little left to say about this timeless star, which has nevertheless remained so simple. Its incredible success from the day of its launch in 1954 immediately gave it an iconic status.
It has starred in countless films, from post-war classics to the New Wave and not forgetting major Hollywood blockbusters. Even Daniel Craig in Skyfall, the latest James Bond movie, gives in to its French charm. For Americans, it has simply become, “The Original French Tumbler”.

Re: Duralex Picardie glass

My set arrived today so if nothing else we now have a set of 6 matching glasses in the house for a change (the life expectancy of any set always reduces when my rug rats get ahold of them and start bouncing them around the work tops or floors - dishwasher seems to like crunching them as well).

Liked them so much and they looked robust i just ordered the largest size as well.

Funny thing is now I have them I realised I have seen them everywhere in the UK and abroad - memo to self must pick up some spares next time I see them out and about  ajb007/cool

Cheers!
