History: These glasses were often acquired by housewives who saved trading stamps ( the equivalent to credit card points today). Women would receive S&W Green Stamps or Blue Chip stamps with common purchases like groceries and gas as part of one of the first customer loyalty programs. They would then save them up, paste them in trading stamp booklets and take them to the nearest catalog store to cash them in for coveted items such as toasters, luggage, and fancy dishes.
These glasses would have been used on the bar cart for mixed drinks, brought out for guests who came for Sunday dinner, or they would have adorned a well-set holiday table.
