Duck and Pheasant Glasses

duck and pheasant glasses
The windowsill above my kitchen sink, looking south across lawn and cornfields. Corn bins in the distance. On the windowsill, assorted glasses of I'd guess 1950s and 1960s vintage. Ducks and pheasants on the side, printed in reds and greens and blacks and whites. Yellows on some glasses instead of white. Ducks and pheasants taking to the air, with hunter and hunting dog in the distance.

The smallest size glass, I remember drinking from in the kitchen of my grandparents' farmhouse when I was a kid. The other glasses I've picked up here and there over the years: in antique shops I often run across various styles of duck and pheasant glasses.
