I first noticed this glass at a little French bistro I frequent on weekends. The omelets and crepes were accompanied by freshly-made fruit juice, served in this simple sturdy glass. I always liked the utilitarian cafeteria-style glasses, but fancy ones I found in stores always seemed to try too hard – they were too wide, too manly, too curved, too stylized. Who knew that indestructible, simple perfection was found for $.69 cents at IKEA?
Oh, and POKAL is Swedish for ‘cup’. How practical!
