The hand-painted Fan Pint glass is a 21 ounce beer glass which stands just over 7 inches tall. This glass is the traditional Willi Becher tumbler, a style which originated in Germany and has become one of the most popular serving glasses for nearly any style of beer, including porter, in beer bars worldwide.
The artist uses wispy, bold strokes of color against a hand-frosted glass. Fan is an elegant design for all seasons!
I’ve often been told I should have named this design “feather”. When I created this design, I was thinking of the fans made of feathers - colorful and playful. Not the electric fans we see all over in the summer time moving the hot humid air or the throngs of people surrounding a superstar, it was much simpler than all that. The fans of days gone by, when ladies wore gowns to dinner and everyday activities were of a grander scale. The elegance in daily use.
By the way, this is my mother’s favorite design. Whenever she needs a gift for a special occasion, she calls me to paint “something in Fan” for her.
