    Does anyone know the different manufacturers and model numbers for the various Hill Farmstead glasses? I'm thinking of the long-stem tulip, wine glass, tasting glass, and becher. Below is a picture I found on Google Images. Any help would be most appreciated! (I'm looking into getting a bunch of unbranded glassware for our basement bar and some of these are contenders, but I've had difficultly finding the exact glasses since I don't think any of them are the usual suspects from Libbey.)

    Durobor seems to be the manufacturer for at least the taster, and possibly the wine glass also. Most likely, that is the company they use for all of them. I found some pictures on their website, but it is super glitchy and keeps 404ing on me. Maybe rwitter would be willing to answer?

    Does anyone know how many color variations there are for the HF stem? By my count: black, etched, grey, teal, green.

  13. I have five: white, black misprint, etched, teal, and green. There's also the correctly printed black glass, the grey glass, and I believe there is a "silver" print glass that is different than the grey print glass (I think it's just a different shade of grey), though I'm not certain about that. Then there's also an earlier etched one with thinner text, similar (sorta) to the misprint black glass - I think that one's really old.

    edit: according to the HF thread there's also a misprint white glass.

    I actually kind of prefer the thinness of the "misprints" font...looks a little more sleek to me The black misprint was my first HF glass.

    I suck :( So is the misprint the thick or thin printing?

  19. I do too. There was a long discussion of this in the HF thread a long time ago that involved the word "kerning" being dropped by a graphic designer and Adam Jackson explaining to him why his opinion was irrelevant in a multi-page post. Let's not relive that...

    Looks like it is time to revisit this thread. Anyone know if they have permanently stopped making stemmed wine glasses or just switching manufacturers?

    Also, anyone want to put together a master list? I am happy to make one if everyone wants to list all HF glasses ever made and post a picture of each for reference. I'll try to consolidate all and fill in gaps.
