In the years leading up to Prohibition saloons and liquor stores could be found on every street corner and cases of whiskey in plain brown wrappers were routinely delivered to homes across the US by the Post man. When the Volstead Act passed, supporters of Prohibition systematically destroyed anything connected with the liquor industry, but families of the dealers and saloon owners only began smashing bottles and burning purchasing records out of shame or fear of retribution once enforcement began. Thus, even though the industry was massive, a surprisingly scant amount of evidence of its players or business activities survived to modern times. Several glasses in this little collection are pre-prohibition, such as the highly collectible "Carrol Rye Toasts" glass. Current values on Ebay prove this set is worth more than meets the eye.
