I remember meeting the guy who ran that company---he was convinced the idea was a winner. Sadly, as I recall, very few sets of glasses were sold although I've still got mine!

?29.50 was a lot of money back in 1990, Roger!

It certainly was, Peeps. The glasses were of good quality but were too expensive for the target customers.

I'm glad I didn't add, "especially for tat like that".

I know what you mean Peepsie - I couldn't afford them when they came out first,  but many years later I went up to the shop in Harefield and bought a set.  They didn't have any stock so they engraved them while I waited.  I was was a bit miffed that they didn't have any of the 'official' Beau Peep boxes left, and they were done on 'normal' glass as well, so I had them a lot cheaper. They're still very nice though.
