The Rolf glassware is a fine one: manufacture affordable, but high style glassware in the USA. Their collections are all super, but the Kipper cooler glasses stand out. They are more expensive than most Rolf coolers, and I have now discovered why. A visit to the Rolf website reveals that the glass used in the Kipper coolers is imported from Europe and the etching is done in the USA. The glasses are slimmer and taller than the normal Rolf fare, making them a real stand-out. The ooze contemporary chic and are bound to generate compliments from guests who use them. Totally worth the extra cash. The pitcher, on the other hand, seems no different in quality from the Seabreeze pitcher I also own and I question whether it's worth the extra money, but sometimes it's nice to have a matched set. I've order three times from Wine Vine and find their pricing, shipping and website excellent!
