Spelling Divorce M.A.R.T.I.N.I.

Divorce and alcohol often go hand-in-hand but seldom as stylishly as with this Martini glass. Called “Divorce-tini,” this is, according to the attached label, “A true, functional collectible, designed by artist Lolita. Each hand-painted glass features a unique and delicious martini recipe on the bottom.” The recipe on this Divorce-tini specifies 4 oz. vodka, 1 oz. of Apricot Brandy, and 1/2 oz. of fresh lemon juice (I guess bitterness is an essential ingredient where divorce is concerned).

    This is SPECTACULAR! Wanted to make sure it was vintage before I got too exceptionally excited so pls. confirm.

    Is this dishwater safe or is the painting on top?

    I’m assuming you only have 1. Have you ever seen any others?

    wow! this is amazing! i love the broken ball and chain, the burning marriage certificate, and my favorite is the saw cutting through the roof of the house.

    and what about the red-circle-with-a-line-through-it ban on pretzels? although i am guessing those are supposed to be wedding rings…

    i am also guessing that “lolita” has had her share of relationship troubles…

    Your questions:

    No, this isn’t vintage, so don’t get too excited. I’m the same way– if it were vintage it would go up a zillion notches.

    It’s painted on the outside, so it’s not dishwasher safe.

    Yeah, those are wedding rings, not pretzels, but I made the same leap myself when I first saw them.

    I only have one– bought it at a yard sale for $3.00. But did some research and found you can buy them online (for around $24.00 each) from the artist at her website:


    They come in a variety of styles and themes including cities, holidays, and my favorite– “Grandma Got Run Over.”
