Why do people think these are Radiobar glasses?

https://contact.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.d ... adios10467

I guess to jack up the price of MCM glasses?

Not people, just one person. Look at who's selling them and then you'll understand.

They might be radio bar. Just not a "radiobar"
They are from those tabletop ones right?
He shows a photo of the bar in the last photo.
Of course they could just be replacements.

The Stewart Warner Radio Bars had gold trim, not silver. Those glasses are Mid Century Modern glasses, way overpriced. They do work well as Substitute Radiobar glasses though, but not at that price :)

Just don't like it when people mislead their buyers and confuse the market... wish he wouldn't do that. The Radiobar Shaker listed on Ebay is also not Radiobar...

That’s a great deal, nice catch on those glasses. Let me know if you want to resell them. I’m always trying to get glassware for radiobars.

I needed the shot glass and small tumbler. I bought the large tumbler to use to get my other small tumbler. Then I think I am finished!

The Grunow came with all the glassware. This is the Philco 650 bar. It was missing 2 shots, 2 small tumblers, and the Scotch bottle. I just got the scotch bottle today so I have everything now. I have to fix up the bar still but it will do into the den some day..

My Philco Radio Bar is completely empty, except for one lonely bourbon decanter. And unless I win the lottery, it'll have to stay that way. But that's okay-I don't drink anyway, so it just stays closed.

You could buy glassware that fits and looks similar for not too much. You could even replace with similar decanters. Would be nice to have a full bar set to show off if you do ever open it.

Yes, I could find some glasses-it just hasn't been high on my list of priorities. I would prefer the correct ones-but can't afford them Maybe someday.

I get ya Dan,
I would NEVER pay up for glassware. I was extremely lucky to get what I have. I paid more for the shot glass I bought last year than I did for the bar with 95% of the glassware.
I wish I had an extra set for ya.

Unfortunately these bars seem to be growing quite a lot in popularity. I see them getting over $5000.00 in the next year or two.
One listed right now is almost $3000.00 in under 24 hours listed.
