||Rainbow Sherbet Mercury|
Item No. 2084
Our beautiful sherbet glass is inspired by the refreshing dairy confection that takes the edge off a hot summer.
By comparing the modeling image below to the glass colors used to create the vase you can easily mistake
it for the real thing.
Sherbet is a product that has been enjoyed for centuries throughout Europe and Asia in a variety of forms.
In America, sherbet is a fruit flavored frozen dairy product with 2% butterfat while sorbet is fruity, without the dairy, similar to Italian Ice.
In Turkey, the person responsible for preparing and serving Sharbat is called a Serbetci.
On their backs they carry a large brass flask with a long nozzle called an ibrik with the drinking glasses held in a sash.
Serbetci serve their sharbat by bending forward and filling a glass from a nozzle curved over their shoulder.
In the rural areas of Turkey a groom's family arrives at the bride's house once the dowry is agreed to bringing an ibrik of Sharbat for the future bride to drink as a sign of the grooms acceptance.
