Western Trash glasses retain the bottle’s original shape and character. Wine bottles traditionally have a concave base, known as the “punt,” but some bottle-makers have stopped doing this. The base of your Western Trash glass can range from a 7 cm concave to completely flat.
The bottom edge of your glass may be angular or rounded. Some bases bulge out a little; others are flush with the rest of the glass.
The underside of your glass may have small linear grooves, meant to stop wine bottles from sliding on the table.
Your glass may show the original markings from the bottle factory, usually a string of numbers and symbols along the base. We don’t try to remove these markings; they add to the quirky character of Western Trash drinkware.
