Dimpled pint glasses (or dimple mugs, jug glasses, handled glasses) are having a resurgence in popularity, after falling out of fashion in favour of the straight-sided pint glass (but are still less common). Always more popular with the ‘older generation’ (perhaps because they are easier to hold) and they are regarded as being more traditional. Shaped like an oversized mug (with a handle) they are moulded with a grid of thickened glass (resembling a Second World War hand grenade). The dimples were originally intended to add strength and aid washing up – to withstand frequent washing and stopping it slipping when washed by hand, but when machine washing became prevalent from the 1960s, these were less crucial and stackability was a more useful feature.
