On my posting from January 28, 2012, I featured a set of Edward Gorey designed "double old fashioned" glasses sold in the gift shop of The Metropolitan Opera. The Met also produced a second set of glasses with different Gorey images. This set shows the four principal classifications of singers - Soprano, Contralto, Tenor and Bass, performing in fantastically designed costumes. These images were also available on tee-shirts from the Met store.
I do not own this set of glasses, but a fellow collector has kindly photographed their set for use here.
This is a spot where I post photos and personal observations on pieces from my Edward Gorey collection. I welcome all discussions, questions, comments and corrections to the information posted. email@example.com All content and images are copyright 2008 - 2017 Irwin Terry
