PAVINA®
2 pcs glass, double wall, large, 0.45 l, 15 oz, USA

https://www.bodum.com/us/en/4560-10us4-pavina

USA is prominently in description of this glass. Having contacted Bodum before, I email to ask if it is domestic production. "No, it is made in China", I am told.

This particular item is manufactured in China.

Each item (gift box) include a set of 2 glasses.


WTF, Bodum? Roll Eyes

Maybe the 'USA' has to do with the measurements '15 oz' being the measurements for the only country that doesn't use liters, i.e. the USA?

Not saying this is clear, but that would be one possible interpretation of that line.

Or it's made in the USA province of China.

I think the legal peril is if they say "Made in USA"



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

They're nice, but a bit on the fragile side, handle carefully. Oh, and they need to be hand washed.

So just like Tervis, except different in virtually every way. Including cheaper, the only positive.
