Ruby Flash Cup. This is a vintage ruby flash cup, with the name Hellene etched on the front. This ruby flash cup measures about 2.75 inches tall. I cannot find a marking on it. It does have some wear on the ruby consistent with its age.
Many scenes of the Mad Men television show are shot in the offices of the executive partners of the fictitious advertising agency. It is interesting to watch as most men and women of that generation smoked and drank . . . in their office. Unlike today where smokers have to go outside; and more and more companies are requiring that their employees not smoke at all. But what interests me, as well as other collectors Iím sure, are the time accurate accessories on the show.
One accessory on the show that has caught a lot of attention is the barware and in particular, the Roly Poly glasses used by the shows characters at least in the first few seasons. These glasses filled with whiskey, vodka and other liquor were designed by Dorothy Thorpe.
