A Graphic Statement

One of our more recent thrifting finds is a set of Anchor Hocking shot glasses in their original box.  (The box calls them whiskey jiggers, but we like to drink whiskey in bigger glasses!)  What’s so special about these shot glasses, you ask?

Well, they have some of the most hilarious graphics that we’ve seen in a very long time.  Although we can’t be certain, we think these glasses were made in the early 1970s, just when conservation movements are beginning to get some national and international attention.

From left-to-right, the back of the glasses read: Reforestation Expert, Wildlife Manager, Game Warden, Water Conservationist!  Great graphic designs AND hilarious puns?  Now if we could only find the designer responsible…

    you might get a copy of this.

    If shotglass.org is right, these should be in the book, because it lists “Pickvet numbers” for them. Frex, the Wildlife Manager is Pickvet Catalog #:PPD339-1-80
